I’ve been crazy busy for nearly a month. What with dad hurting himself—for those of you who didn’t know, he broke his hip, had surgery, and is now in a rehab facility—my schedule was hit hard. And I didn’t have wiggle room to begin with, not after putting books up for pre-order that weren’t already written.
Luckily, I finished the first one, S*x on the Beach. Now, I have to wrap up Hook by next Friday, get it edited, formatted, and uploaded before my KDP deadline hits. I haven’t taken any time off and barely have time to spare to have a cup of coffee with my dd or a meal with family. If I got sick right now, I’d be toast. (I’m knocking on wood, because I don’t want to jinx myself!)
On top of all that, I have a plotting bootcamp starting on Monday and a classful of writers ready for me to lead them. I’m just a little stressed.
Things I don’t worry about and won’t until I reach THE END? Cleaning house, cleaning the pool, wearing makeup, blow-drying my hair, washing clothes, clipping my nails…you get the picture? I’m pretty scary-looking when I’m in deadline mode.
The five-year-old sighs when she sees me. “Do you always have to write?” Yes, baby, I do. Or at least for the next week, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. I just have to get there!
So, be thinking happy thoughts for me. Tell the universe I have grit (not that I’m gritty!), I’m fierce, and I’m going to do this!
Sending energy, strength and hugs your way!! Love your books and truly appreciate your devotion and hard work!! Blessings. 💫💫💫💪💪🤗📚💞💞🌞
Peggy, you’re a sweetheart! I hope I don’t let you down!
Delilah there is no way you could ever let me down!! You take all the time that you need. Family first including time for yourself. <3 <3
I suspect that you might work better under pressure? I know I do and I kind of know how you feel. I’ve committed to several blog posts/reviews, perhaps more than I should have, but as long as there is no hurricane again this year, I will get everything done. I bet you will, too.
I hope I didn’t just jinx myself. 🙂
