Over-Committed?

So over the weekend I actually contemplated if maybe I had too much on my plate. After all, I have 14 projects in the works not including 4-5 others. The beauty of having so many projects going at once is that I’m never at a loss for something to work on. If one project isn’t speaking to me, another one surely will.  This means I never have writers block. I don’t have time for that.

A friend of mine recently asked if I was worried about having so many things going on that I never finish anything. I sat back and thought about this. I’ve always been a multi-tasker. Thinking back –  I’ve never been one to only be working on one book at a time. I’ve never been one for whom too many projects has ever really been an issue. After all – I am extremely prolific. If you saw all the files in my computer you’d totally understand why I’m not concerned.  Not to mention that amidst the chaos that is my writing life, I complete a lot of projects. Sure, sometimes a project gets shoved to the back burner for a few years longer than it should (as was the case for Honoring Death), but each time I still manage to finish them.  So my readers can always be assured that the books will, eventually come out.

As I was going through September’s To-Do list and marking off completed projects, it occurred to me how much I actually get done (especially while still working my full time job). So while I am feeling a bit anxious about not having Into Darkness done yet (my editor promised we will try to have it done this month), I am excited about how much I’ve actually gotten done so far this year.  And I know once I finally go part-time at the day job next year I will be able to accomplish so much more!

So here’s to productivity and becoming as Ptah! May all our creative endeavors flourish and become a source of inspiration, information and enjoyment for ourselves and others.
