Stress of Being a Writer
This is a semi-stressful confession-city type post. This week I have felt the pull in so many different directions: a new (I mean FIRST) diet and counting calories and planning menus, WriteOnCon, networking, Facebook, Twitter, creating new Zazzle products, the anxiety of canning my first run EVER of tomatoes, my husband having to work an extra day, the lawn still isn't mowed, my children are STILL UP right now (tsk.tsk.), the "fever" of my new "Brainstorms" (the next book I'm gonna buy), and the procrastination (grrr...) of actually working on my WRITING projectS. And I call myself a writer? Well, what can I say? I'm having summer priority problems. School starts in 3 and a half weeks and I still don't know if I have a job (my last one was p/t and semi-temporary). ANYWAY, it's all fun, but there's just not enough time in the day. I stayed up till 4am this morning and only slept 5 and half hours. I told myself that I would not make that same mistake again. So I guess I still have 4 hours, and I can go to bed at 3am! Just kidding. But I have been on the computer nearly ALL day. I'm having TOO much fun over at WriteOnCon. I just hope they do it again next year. And the actual conference hasn't even started yet! I'm hoping to get a writer friend to go to a the SCBWI Carolinas Conference with me in September. Okay, so I'm done rambling for now. See you later and keep on keepin' on!
