I'm sure everyone feels like this picture (from clker.com) at some point. I'm not nursing any babies at the moment and I gave up ironing and walking beagles a long time ago. But I still feel like I have a ton of things I need to do, verses all the stuff I want to do. Do you ever feel pulled in all directions?
I have the rest of the school day to get through today, but I also want to start working on a synopsis for my MG story. I kind of have a small blurb going, so at least I'm working on that. I also have two manuscripts out on submission -- ones that I wrote a long time ago. Then I have six photographs submitted to a local magazine. I'm still trying to get on the cover so I can get $100. That would be nice.
And if that's not enough, I have a crazy idea for two more picture books! They both follow along with one I have submitted out right now. I know it's crazy to come up with a series before the first one has been accepted, but it's one of my favorites. I was told by an editor about a year ago that it was really good, but didn't fit in their book line at the time. So, we'll see ...
Then there's more school stuff I need to do, house cleaning, laundry, and all that fun stuff. I have two baskets of clean clothes that need to be folded, but my silly cat has decided it's her home now. The baskets are stacked on each other and Belle is sleeping in the top one all the time. She's getting pretty old, so I don't have the heart to kick her out and put the clothes away. How sad that I can be manipulated by a cat so easily. Most people in the work force take coffee breaks and here I am taking a whining break. I guess I better shut myself up and get back to work now.
So -- what's been keeping you extra busy lately?
