Falling Behind. 

My editor always tells me, ‘Don’t concentrate on the numbers!! Write and they will come.’ But then my brain gets its cup of coffee in the morning and logs on to my blog and says, ‘These numbers aren’t success!! Nobody wants to show up and read your work! You’ve failed another day!’ Has anyone else out there encountered this voice? Okay, it’s an interior monologue, it’s not a voice, perse!! 

When you encounter the voice of failure, the voice of ‘I can’t!’ How do you beat it down? Are there other metrics of success that you use to gauge how things are going? I average between 4 and 6 posts every single day. I should be averaging at least 10 peaks at each post, and yet, in 2017 I am at half that. 

My editor is right now rolling her eyes. Okay, she’s not even reading this right now because it’s 11:11p.m. on January 12th, 2017 here in Minnesota. She’s not a night owl at all, I am. It’s who I am. My brain kicks in overdrive, especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays!! Those are typically D.J. possible days, so night time is my energy boost. 

So, here I am, 11:12p.m. and I am just throwing this out to the blogosphere seeing how everyone is doing and hey, what metrics for success do you look at? Just curious. Let’s chat.
