…and exhausted. I have so much I need to jump on and the thought is overwhelming. So, I’ve begun a list of lists. My priority should be working hard on the book I’ve promised to turn in in Feb. But I have other obligations. When I make a commitment, I must see it through or I feel like not only have I let the person who I committed to down, but myself as well. I’m not a flake and could not live with that character flaw. So, I have two answers now for every request. It’s a simple yes or no. I had to turn down judging a contest I’ve judged for 3 straight years. I felt horrible saying no. But if I agreed, I’d ultimately let someone else down, least of myself. I need to write, and saying yes isn’t conducive to me getting my daily page count down.
So, with this blog post and making a few comments on the Murder She Writes blog, I need to keep my ass in the chair, do some long over due critting, put together a lesson plan for a workshop I’m doing next week (for Lori Devoti’s plotting loop, more info on that tomorrow) and somewhere I have to squeeze in writing Reese and Francesca’s story.
So much for vacations. Playing catch up sucks the big one.
Write on and I’ll chat with y’all tomorrow.
