With less than two months to go before manuscript deadline, work to do for bills to pay, a family who needs my attention as well, an author can get overwhelmed. So under a cloud of anxiety, I finally did last, what I should have done first.
I hope you don’t mind me cheating, but I wrote about this on my personal blog.
Sometimes, a writer simply must get creative. And it makes me wonder about you. How do you overcome the overwhelming willies when you are pulled in many directions, but committed to meeting your obligations?
