I'm kinda having one of those months where every day is going by in a blur and I can't find a single moment to accomplish any of my goals.
Like today for instance - I'm so busy, so entirely overwhelmed and wrapped-up in day-to-day living that this post published without a title. Oy.
Then there's my to do list. Todays list includes cleaning 3 of my 5 bathrooms, doing laundry, changing bed linens, cleaning out closets, straightening up bedrooms, critting 2 query letters, shipping off 2 packages,squeezing in a 3 mile walk/run, making dinner, helping kids with projects/homework, finishing my blog post for The Mixed-Up Files, and if I'm lucky....EDITING. (that's just the stuff I can remember)
Yes, the blog post and editing should be at the top of my list....but somehow life always pushes the things I really want to do to the bottom of the pile.
Is that maybe like an agent's slush pile? They have the stuff they have to get done every day - including working with their existing clients. Then, maybe, when they get some time, they look through that slush pile.
It's also easy to imagine why it might be a bottom-list priority. Let's face it. They get loads of crap.
Kind of like my current manuscript.
Which is probably why I'm avoiding editing it.
It's too much work!
But, thanks to my fabulous crit partners (yes, you know who you are....and yes, that's your offical title...remember: no good deed goes unpunished!) I think my manuscript can be so freaking awesome.
So...if you'll excuse me now...I think I'll get back to WORK!
editoral note: i finished those crits late last night. and stayed up till 2 am working (but not finishing) the mixed-up files post. so although my to-do list is being checked off - i'm so tired today i might not get to the rest of it. sigh.
