I have a huge week this week. And I made it busier. I have to drive the company truck for a show that we have which means I may get overtime again. I'm querying every day, again. And I'm going to start revising another manuscript. Again. To top it off, I recommitted myself to reading and reviewing Heartless by Gail Carriger, and I agreed (volunteered) to beta-read Hanna C. Howard's WiP.
Why am I doing this, you ask? Well, it's because I need to get my backside in gear. I've slacked off on my writing lately. Sure, I lost some motivation, I got REALLY busy at my day job, and my wife has summers off (perk of being a teacher). This means that whatever free time I get is easily filled with stuff. Some of that stuff includes writing, but most of the time I'm too tired to even think. But no more excuses. I over-committed myself with the intent of getting something done.
I still want to join a critique group with the RMFW, but right now I'm going to wait until after the conference. That will give me until September to get a project or two completed so that I can then join/put together a critique group.
Who else over-commits to projects? Why? And do you get stressed? Do you get anything accomplished? How long does it last?
