Hello all you nice people in blogger land. Today is my day to blog, but it is also the day before I have a manuscript due. A manuscript that is not ready yet. And that terrifying reality gives me hives and makes me doubt myself.
What on earth makes me think I can write a book? (Never mind those other books I somehow published). Seriously, I don't have time. I really don't. After going to work and then coming home and taking care of the kids, and the pets, and the house, and the husband, and writing that PTA newsletter I have no idea why I signed up for, and doing the fundraising for my kids sports team, and a hundred other things that demand my time like angry Canadian geese (the most scary image I could think of at the moment relating to a horrible childhood experience involving a loaf of bread and a hungry goose - shudder) why, why am I doing this to myself?
Let me think...
Oh right - I actually love this. Because even though right now I have not slept enough in I can't remember when and I'm living on sugar and chocolate and green beans (gotta think of your health you know) I would not trade this opportunity for all the housework and reality TV in the world (what I would be doing if I wasn't writing).
Back to editing folks, because if this blog teaches you nothing else, it's the importance of editing. (Good gravy how many run-in sentences can I put in one blog post?).
I need another chocolate chip cookie with a green bean chaser... I'll sleep when it's done.
