Weekend wrap-up

Weekend wrap-up

wrapping paper, ribbon, and twine

Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:

  • I launched my book Psych Meds Made Simple.  It was very cool to get such a positive reaction from people.  Thank you! ❤️  And because of the fabulous people who bought my ebook, it’s a #1 new release in the “popular psychology psychopharmacology” category on Amazon.  Now granted, I don’t imagine there’s a whole lot of competition in that particular micro-mini-niche, but it’s still pretty darn cool.
  • As I mentioned in my post yesterday on psychomotor retardation, I’ve been really slowed down this week.  That has meant not leaving the house, not showering until I got so stinky I grossed myself out, and watching the minutes tick by with agonizing slowness.  Luckily you can get everything you need delivered these days, so I haven’t needed to leave home at all.  Thankfully there’s been an improvement as the week has gone on.  This morning I ventured past my front door for the first time in a week.  Not very far, mind you; I just took out some recycling and picked up my mail, and it was ok but I’m still walking very slowly.
  • Uncomfortable Revolution™ published my story A Venetian Romantic Getaway For Me and My Depression.  I also published Easy money-saving tricks on Vocal Lifehack.
  • I didn’t get much writing done this week (the pieces I just mentioned were written a while ago), and I definitely appreciate my system of always having 2-3 weeks worth of posts scheduled ahead of time; it keeps me from putting any pressure on myself around writing.

How has your week been?

  1. Huge congratulations about the book and your other articles getting published! 😍 It sucks about the psychomotor retardation, but that’s true and a very good thing that at least you can get what you need without going out. I hope next week will be better for you with this. 🙂

  2. It might be somewhat easy to have a high rank in an obscure category, but I’ve looked at your numbers, and your book had a super-high overall ranking, which is downright awesome!!! Great job! That’s a successful book launch if ever I’ve seen one!

    I’ve ordered the paperback to put on my “friends” shelf! That’s where I gather books written by myself and my friends!! YAY!!

  3. #1 is awesome regardless of how much competition, nice one!
    And congrats on your other publications. Sorry to hear you’ve had a rubbish week otherwise, hope things pick up next week xx

  4. I’ll have to include your book on a blog post soon if you’d like? #1 new release, that’s awesome! I’m sorry you’re still doing it tough with the slowness in general but it’s a good sign to get past your front door a little. I’ve found today things may be easing up for me too (current flare seems to have lasted about 2 weeks and is driving me insane). Fingers crossed things continue to get a little easier, bit by bit, for you. Congrats on the other publications too, off to check those out now. I hope this week is kind to you 🙂
    Caz xx
