I love the imagery of “whirlwind activity” because it perfectly describes my brain right now. One thought takes center stage and, before I can act on it, a different one swirls to the front to be replaced by another and another and another. Here are a few of the things that have been whirling through my thoughts for the last week:
Finish writing novella for Barbour. Due April 15 for release in November
Finish synopsis for novella that’s due to editor in the next few days
Respond to interview questions for guest spot on a blog
Prepare talk for marriage retreat
Help write customized lyrics to “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder” to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday
Decide if I can fit another novella into my writing schedule that already feels overwhelming
Shop and prepare food for a Chaplain Spouse’s coffee
Pack for month long trip
Pack books for month long trip
Read library books so I can return them before I leave for month long trip
Prepare for launch party on Facebook
Figure out how to cram ready-to-eat food into my already stuffed freezer so hubby eats something while I’m on my month long trip
Get latest revisions to crit group so the novella I turn into Barbour on April 15 is worth reading…and that takes me back to item number one so we can start the whole process over again.
Anyone else struggle to keep a single thought in your brain long enough that you get something done?
