So Much To Do, So Little Time To Do It

I have been trying to figure what do you do when you have so little time to do it. Right now, my creativity is at a peak it hasn’t been in a long time. I have several stories that are new to me, coming to mind. I seems to spend a lot of time writing down the basics so I don’t forget it. I have had a couple of actual scenes that came to me, had to get them down – not completely sure where they fit, but pretty sure I know the story they belong in.

I have about 20 article ideas that I have been working on – at least a basis to send a query out – this is something new for me, not the query, but writing to offer article ideas.

I have three new story ideas and 3 new shorts I am working out the small stuff on. It’s exciting but overwhelming as well – I am trying to prioritize and know that I need to sit down to finish one, but I am afraid of losing the other, so I have been focusing on outlining the new ideas so as not to lose them.

I have not been as disciplined in my writing as I was hoping to be at this point. I was trying to figure it out when I do my best and most writing – it always comes down to situations when I am supposed to be doing something else and can’t do what normally pulls me away from writing (damn you television and Internet, for being so much fun). Now I am sure for most of you, this would be a ‘duh’ moment. For me, it was an ‘aha’ moment. I know what I need to do, so I have put a little extra effort into getting that writing space ready. Next it’s going to be important for me to schedule the times – I read an article recently (I think on a writer’s blog and wish I could remember who it was because I would like to give him props.)

The basis of what he said was that for him, it became more important to write something every day, not focus on getting 10 pages done a day, but to write something whether it was 3 paragraphs or 3 pages. Hmmmmm…I love this thought – he went on to say that by the end of the month, he had something like a 30,000 (or was it 60,000) book written. Time to start writing, I say it again.
