|Okay, so I haven't been THAT busy.|
Let's be honest. There is a point during the process when you have to stop and ask yourself if it's all worth it. The writing, the editing, the marketing...all mixed together with all the real life stuff you've got to get done...
It's a great ways to lose sight of your sanity.
My son once pointed out that I am trying to do a job that has no finite end. I could work twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and still, I would not complete all that I want to get done.
There have been times that knowledge almost drives me nuts. Makes me wish we were creations built to function on caffeine instead of sleep, so I could get more done.
Since I've tried that and it's a total, flu-inducing fail, I've decided to simply pace myself. To give myself credit for the things I do get done. And of course, I will make my lists and try to triage the things that need done...things like the paying the electric bill and buying food for the kids.
I suppose I'll get done what I can get done, and call that good enough.
