This round of ROW80 has been a bit of a windy road for me. On the one hand, fantastic news and a writing contract in hand. On the other, the realisation that there are actually only 24 hours in the day, and I can’t do everything I want to, no matter how hard I try.
There’s quite a lot on at the moment. Apart from the contract for Room for Love, I had another request for a revise and resubmit on Sea Fever, and a request for a shorter piece under another name. The new job is getting frantic, and my daughter wants to make Play Dough. The weather’s turned cold here, and I need to find our winter clothes (seriously, how many places in a house are there to hide winter boots? Where the hell did I put them?). And I have lots of stories competing for time in my head, and my writing schedule.
So once again, my goals are shifting to accommodate what matters most, right now. Tea & Devilry‘s languishing on the back burner, while I work on edits for the contracted book, and consider what to do with the R&R. My to do list keeps growing, my schedule keeps shifting, and it’s all really good news because it means more people will get to read my stories.
And as soon as I figure out how to convince the US IRS to give me an ITIN number, all will be well with the world.
