The surprise is not how little I wrote (for me), but how much I actually got done. This week was a perfect storm:
- major new book launch with attendant hoopla and marketing
- Annual taxes landed.
- Inclusion in a big name SF bundle, that required dropping everything and reviewing/reformatting a whole series, and all the guff that goes with that.
- Month end/month start
- and trying to get book #100 finished before deadline.
As I mentioned on Friday, not all distractions are negative. Even good news can side-swipe you.
I’m writing this the day before it posts, and I know already that I got the book finished, and by dint of spending all my spare time and a whole day of writing doing other things last week, I managed to cover off the rest of the crises.
I also lived a very unbalanced life last week, to the point where snarky comments were being made over dinner. Warning taken: This coming week, I will ease off the accelerator a lot.
