Oh My GOSH!!!!!!

I feel like I'm drowning.  I know I shouldn't complain.  My troubles are hardly bad ones.  But I'm doing revisions for one contracted book a few chapters at a time.  I just got my full manuscript back with revisions for another contracted book (250 pages in word - 90,000 words).  My proof copy is about to come back for my first contracted book any day.  I'm trying to make time to revise a chapter a week of a 5 chapter short novella I wrote so I can submit it.  And I started a new book that is my first venture into supernatural/fantasy.  On top of that, I'm writing 2500 - 3000 word short stories for a contest.  I'v written four, have two more mapped out, and want to have 8 written in the next few days so I cna pick on to submit and clean it up.  Then I'm going to take the remaining short stories and compile them into a book of inter-related short stories (about 10,000 - 12,500 in length) by expanding the shorts I'm currently writing.

It's great stuff, but I am swamped.  Yikes.  Definately in the weeds right now.


  1. One thing at a time. That's all you can do. Stay calm, deep breaths and chocolate. It could be worse. You could be me.

  2. Stop! I would be thrilled to be you.
