I don’t want to leave the wrong impression. I love ghostwriting. I like getting paid to sit down and write on random projects. There’s just a problem that goes with it. It forces all your energy away from your project and into someone else’s project. I spent the last two days working on a website and real estate rewrites. It was easy money…but I haven’t touched my novel in 48 hours.
It’s time to get back to work. I am going to try to finish the first rewrite of my novel within the next 48 hours. I’m still going to take sporadic ghostwriting jobs because I need the money…but I need to find the right balance. I am currently dedicating at least three hours to writing a day–whether it is my own writing or ghostwritting. I may bump that up to four hours. Getting my own projects done when I have the time is the best way to not fell stressed out when i have a ghostwriting job.
