Sleep helped, and I even got up at 4;15, as difficult as that was.
In my mind, I’m a full time writer. It’s all I think about, even when I’m not writing. So it’s hard to give myself a limit on what I can do. Limits are good, helpful things when used properly. They’re not a sign of weakness; rather they’re a sign that I want to do so much more. When I have the financing to back up full time writing, I have no doubt that I’ll be able to handle the mutliple novel schedule with miscellaneous projects included. For now though, limits.
Three writing sessions a day. One for novel, one for short stories, and one for miscellaneous (crits, market research, story research submission work, etc). So… since I’m not willing to abandon my short story work, I need to hold off on one of the novels. It’ll be quicker to finish the first draft (I’ve had to do a lot of work to get to this point), so I’ll finish that novel, then go edit Forgotten Star.
Limit: one novel at a time? I guess I can deal with that. I’ll just need to work a little faster on them. Right? 🙂
