That’s me. A man with a plan. For now.
I was thinking about the dilemma I’m in, with 3 stories in my head and partially started. Which one do I work on? The Grand Epic Fantasy Tale? How about the Dark and Bloody Murder Mystery? Or the Fantasy/Science Fiction Combo Extravaganza?
Do I work on just one, or do I try to work on all three? Or I could even just pick two and go back and forth between those.
Well, there’s only one way out of a dilemma, and that to make a decision. So I did. It might be a stupid idea, but if it is, I’ll find out soon enough, and then I can change it.
But for now, I’m going to try to work on all three stories. Two days of the week, I’ll work on one. Two other days, I’ll work on another. And still two different days, I’ll work on the 3rd. At least, any time I have time on those particular days. Yes, I am crazy. That still leaves one day left in the week. I’ll probably write on that day sometimes too.
I’ve got it all planned out, but I can already feel myself going crazy. My brain is trying to go in about 10 or so different directions all at once. My life isn’t just these stories. I’ve got a wife, and a job, and friends, and a cat. An apartment to help keep clean and organized, food to eat, sleeping, this blog to keep going, and all those other million little things that are so important to a comfortable life-like showering, grocery shopping, and brushing my teeth. And the whole time my brain is saying “Oh, don’t worry, I’ll be fine. I got this.”
Yep. Crazy. And to anyone out there that has to deal with all this stuff plus kids, and still find time to write (or draw, paint, create, etc…) anything at all? You have my respect, and best wishes.
