I’m feeling pretty good. I just got a bank account for Standal Publications, complete with a few checks, a business card, and a little bit in the bank.
It makes me feel like I can take myself seriously again. Like writing isn’t a hobby, it’s a business. It really makes me want to write more books. And that is good, because I want to have lots of titles for people to select from. Part of the reason I have a DBA is because I’m planning to write across genres, using multiple pennames, and this makes “the books” easier.
And I’m double-excited because I finally got the main room all finished up and it looks goooood! I put my writing desk next to the pellet stove, where I naturally am inclined to be, and it is working out already! I also made myself a cork board to organize my notes and papers on. And I moved the seating area by the stairs, and got a dining table by the windows, and there’s still plenty of space for the pets to race around the house. I know, this is tangentially writing-related, but I’m so stoked to finally have my life in order and be able to write without spending hours sighing at the mess and hunched over in a chair.
A while back, Madison Woods posted this post about writerly spaces. I didn’t post mine at the time because…well, I was embarrassed. What a sty. But now it’s pretty and show-off-able.
You’ll notice I’m actually working on this post. #AmProcrastinating. Oh well. Procrastination time is over. Gotta get cracking on The King’s Mutt.
Till later, fellow writerly procrastinators.
Your Dearest Nicolette.
