The happiest of all lives is a busy solitude. ~ Voltaire
If that quote is true, then I guess I’m pretty damn happy. Because I’m up to my eyeballs!
Today, I finished working on a 400+ pager by a very talented author. Last week, I wrapped up a 200+ pager from another. Tomorrow, I have to start slamming through a book that I have to load into Amazon by the 22nd. Think I’ll make it?
Lord, I don’t know, but tomorrow, I’m meeting my friend Cynthia D’Alba for a mini, one-day retreat at a favorite coffee house to do nothing but write, write, write. If you know Cyndi, you’re probably laughing at that thought, because she’s a talker, and she brings out the Chatty Cathy in everyone she knows. But I’ll stand firm. Maybe insist on a timer. 45 minutes of words, then 15 of talking. Hope she’s into it. 🙂
So, tell me. What are your strategies for keeping on task? Any words of wisdom for me?
Maybe I need a soundtrack, and it could start with this…
