I had so many things planned, those little bits and pieces that seem to get away from you.
It’s now Thursday night and I have only just come back to this post to write some more or maybe finish it, but that should you some idea of how easy simple things can get away from me.
To fill in the gaps in the story, I started to make a list of those bits and pieces, and that was the first mistake.
I frightened myself.
Tuesday disappeared in writing down what was on my writing slate. For instance,
Episodes 11 to 15 of the murder story, because my characters are having a fight in my head
The treasure hunt story is done, just needs a few tweaks
Episode 47 of the Castello di Brolio story, where the Germans are about to find themselves on the wrong end of the war
Episode 1 of the WW2 story – this has a start but is it Episode 1. What bothers me is that I wrote some of this on the plane, but it disappeared somewhere, so I’m not sure when this may get done.
Writing instead of insomnia is actually giving me insomnia
Episodes 151 through 177 of Being Inspired, Maybe – Volume 4. This is a series of photographs, and the story inspired by them. Volume 3 is at first draft, and photo association with the stories.
Just about finished editing Volume 2, and I’m about to publish Volume 1.
Episodes 60 through 63 of PI Walthenson’s second case, new additions to the story, and although there is a title, the jury’s still out on whether it’ll be adopted. There’s an interesting dynamic developing between the son and the mother, a woman whom he is discovering to be nothing like the one he thought he knew.
And, don’t get me started on where I am with Strangers We’ve Become, I just finished the 10th read and edit. The book is done but rereading told me, or the cat did far more emphatically, there are a few gaps. This needs to get done, and I need to stick the courage to the sticking point.
Wednesday arrived and I was looking at the list wondering what I was going to do next and realized that I’d been putting off writing the next few posts on the travelling blog which desperately need to be done.
Travelling blog times two, and now it’s Thursday.
Damn, where did the week go?
One thought on “Monday came and went, and now it’s Thursday”
This blog post is so relatable. I often make lists to stay organized, but then get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of tasks that need to be done. How do you prioritize which projects to work on first?
