Spinning A lot of Plates

Howdy there! Been a second since I wrote anything. I have had a few ideas, but nothing has stuck, plus some of the ideas may feel a little out of place here. I’ve also been busy trying to “sell” my book. Had one publisher decline already, which is sort of a relief, but the other two have yet to respond. At least a decline means I can stop worrying. It’s not the best outcome, but it’s an outcome.

The newest venture I’ve taken on is Podcasting, if you haven’t noticed. I’ve tried this before in the past, but I’m taking it very serious this time. I already have five episodes up, and a way to make money off of it. People still need to listen to it in order for me to make any cash, but still, this is as serious as serious can be. I’ve wanted to do a show for a long time, and now I’m finally doing it! It’s also a hell of a lot easier to get my thoughts out through speaking than it is through writing. I know. If I have such a hard time writing, then why the hell am I writing? I don’t know. I just like doing it, but it takes a lot of work.

I’m also still streaming. Just went through another redesign of my layout, and while sort of harder to put together, it does look a lot better than it did before. Looks much more professional. Streaming, however, is the only video content I’m making at the moment. I’ve but abandoned YouTube. I’m even considering not archiving my streams. This whole COPPA thing is terrifying. I know I’m far from being famous enough to get noticed, but all it takes is one screw up, or one thing that I don’t read right or don’t understand, and I could be fined thousands of dollars. It’s just not worth the risk.

I got so much going on, desperately trying to find something that works. I tried focusing on just one thing, but saw no success. My best bet then became trying everything. I got this site, podcasting, streaming, and the book, not to mention trying to come up with something else to write. That’s a lot of stuff to be doing, but the only reason I haven’t done more is just lacking the ability/funds, otherwise I would be trying newer and crazier things.

Maybe it’s not the best idea, spinning so many plates, but it’s the only one I have at the time. It’s the only way I know to achieve some form of happiness. I guess I’m an artist, and I don’t know how to be happy without making some kind of art, whether it be good or bad.
