Keep Digging that Ditch...
Then I pulled up our publishing dates. Hello Reality Check.
We had published one book in eight months.
One Damn Book.
Granted, it was Signature Tastes of New Orleans, and grand, but really?? What have I been doing with my time?
It occurred to me like a bucket of bricks that there was a reason that we would be eating beans and ramen around the office for the next 3 months. Because we haven't done shit production-wise. Ultimately, this falls on me. And it is a suck-egg feeling.
The day-in, day-out grind is not sexy, and is not flashy, but dammit, it does pay the bills. Says he who is drinking a protein shake instead of a meal because there aren't enough ducets in the bank account for grocery trip.
Don't stop digging. Just put your head down and gut it out. And then we can enjoy a breakfast out.
Time to get back to work.
