Now, my challenge is to incorporate what I gained in Paris into my LA lifestyle. I've been back for three days, and I feel like it's not going to be easy. But, I have made the decision to live closer to work, which will cut my commute. I'm also working to be more efficient with my time. Things like meeting time management and organization will be more controlled. I'm also making my friends aware that having more time to write is very important to me. And, since most of them are writers too--and since most of them have seen my dramatic progress--they understand that I will have less social time dedicated to them. It's a sad thing, but I do feel like it's temporary. My next goal is to get extremely rich so that I can hire an assistant to clean and submit my work for me. Then, all I need is a driver and an environmentally friendly private jet that can transport me and my winged unicorn.
I've been writing. I'm working on the NEW AND IMPROVED first chapter to my novel, thanks to all of you great blog readers. I'm excited about it, but it's slow going. I think once I settle into a routine, things will be better.
