How Dare Real Life Interfere With My Writing!

Why is it that as soon as something monumental happens, I suddenly have more to do than I could possibly get done in a short period of time? Is that fate? Is this some kind of weird test of mettle to see if I pass?

Ha! I scoff at ye fates! I shall prevail!

Okay, ’nuff of that nonsense. I’m working up a proposal for my agent (still giddy saying that *g*). And of course it has to come at the same time we have an event at work that will suck up my entire Saturday. Then our daughter has a sports banquet tonight too. I’ve lost one entire day already! Ack! Ack! Ack!

Actually I do some of my best writing on deadline, which I mentioned before. Give me a short window of time to get something done and my fingers will fly on the keyboard, adrenaline pumping and muse hanging on for the ride.

But it sure would be a lot easier if there weren’t so many other things going on at the same time.

Oh, and servants to clean my house and do the laundry would be nice, too *g*
