I started working towards a Strategic Marketing certificate a few weeks ago in hopes of furthering my career and helping our business should it become a full-time job.  I’m glad I did; I’m learning a lot.  I’m writing for a site: clearlyreviewed.com and of course I’m working on all the writing/blogging/designing/tweeting for now two Clearly Puzzled Games apps. 

I’ve been busy.  Physically I’ve been feeling a lot better.  However, I left my job in June and have now made five insurance payments of about $800 each (not to mention all the copays).  During this time, I was supposed to be writing my book.  At first I thought, “Well, I’m busy now so I’ll work on the book later”, but I’m beginning to think I’m filling my time so I can put off writing it.  I’ve bounced from memoir to fiction and back again and then again.  I still don’t know exactly what I’m writing about.  It seemed so clear in the beginning of the summer, but now I feel lost.  It’s easier to blog.

I’ve never taken a creative writing class so the idea of jumping off a cliff and just writing something that never happened is scary.  While I was writing my memoir I pulled up memories that basically made me very depressed and unsure whether or not I should continue for my own health.  My family suggested I strike somewhere in the middle of fact and fiction, but that proved to be a hard balancing act when I knew I could simply write the truth.

So, should I continue with all of my other writing knowing full well that there is no money in it.  Should I try to add even more writing to the mix?  I guess it just depends on what I’m capable of.
