Ever have those periods where it seems as though the more you do, the further you fall behind? That’s where I am right now. There’s a whole litany of things I need to accomplish – in every area of my life – in a two-month time frame. Whew!
So, thinking about that this morning led me to an epiphany. Since I’ve not been feeling like I’ve been accomplishing anything, maybe I should make a daily list of those things I actually do get done, and that might keep things in perspective and reduce my stress level. Okay, sounds good. I’ll get to that today.
I had an idiotic event turn into an unexpected benefit yesterday. I’d done a scene for “Ashes of Light and Shadow.” Now, I was working at Starbucks and drinking lots of coffee. So, I finished my edits – it was a scene I’d written a few months ago – then filed the wrong copy, and tore up the edited version. I thew it out, and then dropped my coffee cup on top of it. Oops.
Yeah, that sounds bad, right? But during the re-edits, I found more places for good foreshadowing and a couple of sentences that really helped the character development. So, a boneheaded move actually worked out for the best.
Wow. Nothing like being caught up in a maelstrom. See you Wednesday evening.
