I know writers constantly battle writer's block. I've faced the demon Blank Page on occasion. There are countless memes, exercises, motivational pieces, and profound quotes on pushing through that brick wall. I have a significantly different problem.
I have too much swirling around in my head to pin any one project down.
- I'm plowing through the third book in The Esau Continuum.
- My literary novel about Hell squats peering at me from my desk, the outline nearly completed.
- I need to send a manuscript to my new voice actor to begin the audiobook process for The Esau Emergence.
- My yoga project remains at the forefront of my priorities which involves a new website, a new FB and Twitter account and a brand.
- Topping it off a sneaky murder mystery I've been working on is whispering incessantly creating a lovely piquant of white noise over everything else.
I know exactly what my next step needs to be but I'm feeling so bogged down with project juju I lift my foot to put it back down again. In the meantime, I'm sinking where I stand.
Somehow I feel this abundance of ideas and work shouldn't feel like a burden. After all, nothing seems more futile than sitting in front of a blank screen watching the curser mock me. Or sinking into the blackhole of research, which must be done. The immobility has become so dire I'm actually caught up on laundry!
Sure I have three more books I need to read for reviews. Of course, I have marketing work to get out for NCW. I've taught forty-eight fitness classes in July alone. It's not like I'm frozen. I've pulled weeds...twice! My house is relatively clean. I can do everything it seems except focus on writing.
Each time I turn to writing projects it's like stepping into a room full of four year-olds clamoring for snacks. Each one of the kiddos pushes and shoves for their spot in the limelight.
I know, I know quit my whining and get to writing.
