Notes from a Drama Queen

Another Day, Another Dollar

Friday, March 05, 2010

Well, I looked at my schedule on Wednesday night and burst into tears. It seemed so overwhelming, and I desperately want to get away to see my daughter and niece (who's a second daughter). But I have so much work it's ridiculous.
Yesterday I emailed my editor to see if there was anyway to rework things.
This morning I spent hours playing with calendars and schedules, and now have the next six weeks mapped out, with visits to my mother, due dates, amount I have to write each day, etc.
I'm not really left-brained. I'm all airy-fairy go-with-it. But as I get old and wiser I discover that a little organization is not a bad thing. I love my pages and pages of schedules. I can see that it's all very doable as long as I pay attention to where I am.

On top of that, I wrote another 15 pages, bringing me to 275. Hurray!!!

YEAH! Is this the SPECIAL book you told me about?

Of course, to be totally bias (and brown nosing), all of them are special. :-)

Oh, I'm glad you feel better. And that you worked it out.

I'm glad you talked to your editor. You've had a lot of personal stuff going on lately, and it's no shame to acknowledge that you need some more time. Glad you're feeling better.
