I might as well be in a circus today.
I have many "urgent" articles and assignments due, and I'm not quite certain how I'll complete them all. I know they'll be finished come heck or high water, but right now I'd honestly like to find out some little elves completed them as I slept! (That being said, I would still seriously edit the pieces for clarity. I don't know if elfish literary skills are up to par these days.)
Ironically, I kind of love this stress of being a writer. It's challenging, and it forces me to prioritize like I've rarely had to before. Sometimes, I feel like an ER doc. Most critical writing first! It's triage at its finest, and it's kind of exciting.
I know this is nothing new.
Most writers have walked this crazy tightrope, trying hard not to fall off into the net of a bad reputation ("S/he never does what s/he says she will. Don't work with him/her anymore.")
It's just interesting, that's all.
Back to the grind...
