Not enough time to write
I suppose I should resign myself to the fact that I will never be caught up in life but it's hard. My head is always bursting with ideas I want to write about, promotional projects I want to try, books I want to read, but there's that darn 24-hour-day to live with and that means something has to give. Sometimes it's sleep, like lately, when I have been trying to go live with the site but often it is a project I really and truly wanted to work on. I guess I need to accept the fact that I will never be able to tell all the stories I want to tell. I could fool myself and say it if I were more organized, if I were home fulltime, if I - fill in the blanks - but in my heart I know that none of that really matters. Thinking about all that depresses me which makes me procrastinate about a bunch of more projects which weighs me down even more.
So I am going back to the goal I have used on and off for a while. I will try to do at least one thing every day to further my writing career. Hopefully more than that but if I can do just one, I'll know I'm taking steps in the right direction. I'd like to say that I will focus more on the journey but knowing myself as I do I imagine that will be tough. But still, one step at a time.
What does that mean for this week? Finishing an article that is due, going through the past 4 months of emails and finding the important ones I missed (and answering them) , working on some publicity for the new picture book, and maybe most importantly, figuring out what the heck it is I want to write next.
Write on, right now.
