Walking the line...

on 03-Mar-2019

Today I feel like I am walking a thin tightrope. I am usually a very busy person and to juggle a few things at once is not surprising for me. My mind is always busy, I am always thinking of a million things at once but have always maintained a reasonable level of work life balance... (Prior to The Elk anyways) At the moment this picture couldn't be more accurate...

I am feeling a serious case of Harli Quinn setting in. I have one week to have this book finished... and of course on one of my final re -reads I decided to change a key part of the storyline... What does that mean? It means you go from looking like picture 1 to picture 2 pretty damn quickly. I have typed up to thirty pages a day to get this thing done. If I was writing full time I would have scheduled my time a little better, However,  co-owning  the Elk  has been a massive job and life change which means a lot of my time is caught up with running it. We have decided to open for Breakfast and change up our lunch and dinner menu... This starts Monday. Yep... That is tomorrow. If it was any other week I would probably have bounced my way through it like I do with many different challenging aspects of my life. But all of it happening this week... I think my sanity is going to take a little hit. I am working through the day and staying up until 2:00am to finish this thing on time. Then on the nights I work, I write all day and work all night.  

 

Day time... turns to 

night time and ...

Night time.. turns to 

Day time...

I guess this is a funny yet straining aspect to writing. Sometimes when you have set guidelines to write a book you can fill the requirement perfectly. You are on time, and the creative flow is perfect. Other times you can lack time to be creative and struggle to become creative on demand. Your emotions run high and sometimes you sit like a deer in the head lights or feel so sleep deprived you don't know if you want to laugh or cry. I have not enjoyed the passed two weeks and I am dreading the week to come. So, I should get off this blog and get back to it before I really start losing my shit!! 

Wishing everyone a Happy Sunday!
