I’m actually out of bed before Ken. It happens just not too often. I am clearing out my emails, reading blogs, and getting things out of the way. Then I’m going to work on the writing things I have to do. I got an email from the editor for my moon book. I need to work on the suggestions she has. I also need to work on the edits for my fiction manuscript. I also want to pick out poems for another manuscript. Madison sent me a link for a Wisconsin writing contest so I need to check that out. Plus I’m behind on all my other newsletters. Today and this weekend will be about writing …
For other activities (like the writing isn’t enough) I need to go to Earthsong as Vicki has asked me to and I need to go to Verizon to look at phones. Stephanie is upgrading and I might upgrade as well. I hate phone shopping. I just want a phone – it doesn’t have to be fancy and I don’t want a dataplan. I just want to call and text – that is it.
On top of my other writing projects I’ve had this story in my head that I want to get down on paper. I know once I start writing it will flow nicely but at this point I have so many other projects going that I don’t want to start another one – yet. That’s not true… I really want to start this one but I’m concerned about having too many irons in the fire. Hopefully if I’m diligent this weekend I’ll get several of these projects moved off my to do list and I’ll be able to work on the new story.
I need a personal assistant but I can’t afford one. Then I could hand off all these other tasks to her and I could say “Give me a pad of paper and a pen and leave me alone so I can write …”
