I’ve been working like a crazy person doing “other” things to contribute to a future writing career. When I collapsed into bed Sunday night, I wondered, when do you say enough is enough?
I spent all of last weekend putting my website together (under my pen name—yay it’s done!). I’ll be attending the August workshop this Saturday (apparently along with the rest of the entire Southern Magic membership… ya’ll rock!). And there's so many other things I don't even want to think about.
What gets me is that I’ve read and heard this is the easy part of publishing. Seriously? The REAL work comes after publication? Holy smokes, I can’t imagine.
So where are you at in all of this? I read so often how fellow writers are juggling their families, husbands, kids, sports, Facebook time, and numerous other things. Can anyone imagine adding yet more—like copy edits, deadlines, and traveling? Think I’ll go take a nap now.
