Crunch Time

Is it just me, or has the world started spinning a little faster? Suddenly, there are not enough hours in the day to do everything I have to. I knew March and April would be busy, but it seems like more and more things to do are being thrown on the heap every day.
Right now I'm working on a presentation I am doing with Terry Odell at the Southern Lights Writers' Conference in Jacksonville on March 30. Two days after I return from that conference, I head up to Clermont, FL to sit on a writers' panel at the Lake County Festival of Reading. After that, I host a Passover Seder for 24 at my house. Sometime in between, I'm trying to edit a novel and a novella, and - oh, yeah - write!!! Throw in a few events with DH, DD and DS's birthday celebration and you have my life. Don't get me wrong -- I love my life. I just wish I could space events out into perfectly proportioned bytes. A little warm up time before, a debriefing period after... ah - if only. So if I'm scarce here, please forgive me - I'm here in spirit!

I am feeling your pain. I put almost all my online groups on digest or hold until life slows down. I have to believe it will slow down. Please don't burst my happy little bubble of hope.

I didn't notice 'doing taxes' on the list.

Oh Dara I'm there with you on that wish! Have fun trying to keep up! =)

Macy - I keep most of my groups on digest - there are just too many!
Terry - Taxes done (sent to the accountant - I'm a writer - math is an enigma to me!)
Thanks, Cole!

LOL!! It seems funny that the hardest part of all of that is to simply write. But that's because there's no such thing as simply writing. All the forces of the universe must coalesce in order to make the magic happen...right?...

Dara Edmondson said...

Totally right, Julia. Only other writers seem to get that!

Jeez...I thought February was your busy month! I'm looking forward to catching up on our way to Jacksonville!

Glad I'm not alone! This month does seem crazy and I know you just had visitors too! Hope life slows down just a tad for ya :)
