Hey, hey, hey! Don’t forget to download your ebook of ‘Paint Chips’! It’s only $3.03 on Amazon and $3.99 on Barnes & Noble. Remember 50 cents from each e-book downloaded goes to The Manasseh Project …but only until Sunday, June 30!
I have 35 days. 35 days to edit draft #4 of this novel. 35 days to rewrite 75% of it. 35 days to edit draft #5. 35 days to (hopefully) do a draft #6.
And in that time I have to
Clean my house
Play with kiddos
Be a wife
Go to church
Be a friend
Promote ‘Paint Chips’
Plan for a presentation on Human Trafficking
Drink more coffee
Go to the beach
I’m not complaining. I can totally do all that. It’s exhausting. But do-able. Everybody has that much on their plates.
But there are some things that I don’t have time for
Obsessing over bad ratings/reviews
Rearranging my pantry
Wondering if so-and-so likes me
Fretting over my waist-line
Worrying if coffee is really stunting my growth
Ain’t NOBODY got time for that.
So. If you hear me fretting or worrying or neglecting my coffee, would you please remind me that I’ve got 35 days and counting down. And that I need to keep my focus on the things that matter?
Okay. Enough of this. I’ve got a purple pen to kill.
WRITE, DRINK (Coffee), and be MERRY!
Love you, Susie!
Love you back, Bear!
Just bought the book on Amazon!!! WooHoo!! Now to find time to read with a newborn in da house!!
And, for the record, I’m thinking EVERYONE loves you, so you should definitely cross that off your list!! (:
Aw, thank you, Lisa! You are so sweet!!!
Oh, man. It is so hard to read with newborns. Well. Newborns and bigger kids! 🙂 No rush!
Although I’d miss you, I excuse you from blogging for the next 35 days.
Ha! Thanks, Peter! Actually, blogging proves to be a good warm up before I get to my real writing. So, I’ll stick around. Just with shorter posts for sure!
I still want to hear how you’d incorporate Chumbawamba’s song into your blog ;P You know.. you get knocked down…you get back up again…nothings ever gonna keep you down.
Ha! Well. It had to do with feeling discouraged and getting back up.
Never, ever neglect your coffee!
Love, your coffee fairy
Oh, I would NEVER do that! 🙂 Twinkle!
