It goes without saying that when you have multiple projects in the pipe that it can feel pretty darned hectic at times. It also goes without saying that it can be a major pain in the backside to prioritize those projects so that you get them done in a timely manner and not pull all your hair out in the process. 😉
Just kidding about the hair-pulling part…hehe.
One of my goals for the year was to relax more, which is difficult for someone like me who enjoys being busy. However, I am finding that the busier I get, the grumpier I start to be until I have to put the brakes on everything to catch my breath.
To that end, I’ve started to prioritize my writing projects in order to allow me more time to catch my breath, see what’s going on outside in the world at large, and basically clear my mind of all those niggling thoughts that nibble away at corners of my mind.
Lately, writing has started to feel like work and while I like to think of what I do as a second job, tagging it with the W-Word tends to remove the Fun Aspect and turn it into an assembly line affair. I don’t want that and a budding aversion is beginning to affect not only my fiction endeavors but also the blog itself. So, to combat that, I am limiting the articles to once a week for a while so I can relax more, stress less, and remember that I do this for fun first and potential income second.
After all, writing without having something to say lacks soul.
