Balancing the Tightrope

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...

Holy, if you find some of those elves could you give them a little training and send them over. I totally get the "my work will get done no matter what" but right now my no matter what is called "lack of sleep" -- the worst thing about writing for a living you have no work or WAY too much. Money wise I'm happy to be in the second category but to lay it out it's, let's see 9:52pm where I am and it's also the first chance I've gotten to even eat a meal today. Sad, plus look at me typing through dinner. Oh well.

I hear ya, sister. My poor laptop needs a bath with all the crumbs that fall upon it during my "meals".

If I find the elves, faeries, demons, whatever they call themselves, I'll send them over to you... after assigning some work to them, of course! : )

Rodrigo: I'd love to respond, but I cannot read a lick of your posting! Sorry!
