Not so bad
Right, that's two tasks out of the way. Finished off my CAB application and finally got time to sit down and wirte a long Patchwork Universe post. It always amazes me how well those things just flow when I sit down and write. I wish doing some ... I want to say "actual" writing, but that's just my brain discounting Patchwork because I've been able to do it recently - bad brain, no biscuit. Where was I again? Ah yes, novels. I *want* to be working on the lesbian vampire novel (I call it that in a tongue in cheek manner, although the description is technically correct), and I *want* to be writing the magical reality Oxford children's novel - there's so many things. Yet I have to have the B5 game ready for Gencon so it must take priority now. I also haven't given up on the idea of Read the Rest, but how to find time to work on that as well? Then there's the possibility of applying for jobesque things, or of looking for more central accomodation.

I always seem to be overwhelmed by a number of things I *could* be doing. I want to create, dammit! I want to proclaim my genius to the world at large by producing a work of art so stunningly awesome that people cannot but stare at it in awe and wonder at my sheer magnificence. OK, I'm getting silly now, but you get the idea.

I want to read the magical reality Oxford children's novel. I bet it'd be neat.

I sometimes feel like I'm just spinning my wheels creatively; I haven't been able to write in months because of other pressure, and when I have, it's all been stuff besides the one thing I really feel I want to work on but just can't seem to get to. So, well, I don't have anything useful to say here, actually. But I think you'll get to it in time.

The trick is not to get so overwhelmed by how much there is to do, that you don't do any of it. Okay, so you knew that. I so want to read the children's novel too. I do hope you're able to write it soon.

Well, at least it's started, and you're pleased with what you've done. You're part of the way there. Don't concentrate on the whole journey, just on the next step. I find it's easier not to get discouraged that way. It's taken me almost a lifetime to learn that. Looks like I'm a slow learner after all :)
