|Where to begin?|
I’m in a bit of a pickle. I have several writing projects in various states of completion and some days I don’t know where to begin. Should I put finishing touches on Edition II of Gold Pans and Iron Skillets? It isn’t available for release until December 1. Should I work on the book cover to Milk Cans and Quilt Blocks (a companion to Gold Pans and Iron Skillets) or do more editing of this work? Should I polish my novel or visit with a man about a cover design? Then there is the one about pain. That one is still in the first draft process and I am still a little scattered as to the layout. Here is a hint about the content. Oh … and I have two blogs to nurture!
I can let all of these writing projects overwhelm me or I can look at is as a smorgasbord. I have so many options in front of me that surely there is something that will satisfy. Unfortunately, I often go for the simple carbs and head right for the blog post. It’s quick. It’s fun. The rewards are immediate because I can check post views in real time to see who is reading my stuff. Those other projects? I should spend some time on them. They promise to offer more lasting satisfaction. But then there are promises and there are sure things. I’m a chicken – I usually opt for the sure thing!
