To do: Make a to do list.

So as you may or may not have noticed, Guardian of Isolation is in actual fact, not out yet. This is disappointing. Mostly to me, but I'm sure you've all been at the edge of your seats in anticipation.

Why the delay you may ask? It's simple really, I am apparently really bad at staying on task. Though mercifully, that isn't really the whole problem here. No, in this case it's more like I forgot what all needed doing, so I kept thinking that the finish line was close than it was.

This is a lesson that can be applied to life too, it's a very good idea to realize just what it is you are trying to do, and all the steps that are needed to get there. Seeing as I've only published one book, and that I wasn't as worried about building up Ravania at the same time, I might be forgiven for not really known what all I had to do. This time around, I've got more on my plate, because I've got promotions, and advertisements, and all kinds of good stuff to go along with the release of the book.

In the future, what this means is that I'll have to keep a to do list so I don't get carried away in my belief that I'm almost there. The to do list also has another bonus. As I check things off the list, I can look at it and be reminded that I am in fact getting stuff done, which is a huge boon when you want to keep moving.

Anyway, that's all I had to say tonight.

This is the Wizard, Wizarding out.
