Is anyone feeling like this man?
I know I am. I have been feeling very overwhelmed this past week.
Although Wiscon was a nice diversion, it did set me back writing-wise. Add to that the long hours I worked this week and all the day-to-day stuff that wears on one’s mind and I know how this poor fella feels.
I usually look forward to the weekend as an opportunity to catch up but, one, it’s amazing how fast the weekends go by and two, it’s amazing how there seems to be just as much stuff to do on the weekends as there is during the week!
However, despite all that, I must come up with a plan to deal with everything I need or want to get done. Or else I will wind up like that guy, sitting in a chair, surrounded by chaos and with no idea how to go forward.
Since I tend to be one of those odd people who can’t just focus on one thing, I have a number of writing projects I’m working on. Squeezing those in while working full-time has been, to say the least, an adventure in creative time management. 🙂
I’m also reading a handful of books (mostly non-fiction) for research and regarding the writing craft in particular.
I’m having brainstorms about my novel and I am desperately trying to make sure I write everything down as I have learned, much to my dismay, that I can’t remember this stuff if I don’t write it down.
I’m determined, however, to bring some order to my life. One way or the other. 🙂
