As I sit here at my desk I am looking at my lists that are taped on my wall and feeling overwhelmed.
- I have one that is my ever expanding topics from PiBoId (even though November is over, I continue to add to the list).
- I have one that is a month by month listing of the drafts that I have written for 12 x 12. I have one that outlines which manuscripts I have submitted to which agents and the date that I should be expecting to receive their rejection.
- I also have a list of who I am critiquing and who I am waiting on for critiques from my critique group this round.
Now I feel like I really should do something with all of these lists. I have so many stories running through my mind, that I am having difficulty knowing where to focus my attention so that I can really edit. Editing is the part of writing that I enjoy the most, and I have so many things to edit that I don't know where to begin.
I know that I have dedicated this school year to writing, and I have done a very good job of sticking to that. For me, however, it is time to stop at the pump, refuel, and get on with this challenging, uphill drive. I will never make it to the top of the mountain unless I step on the gas.
