Chasing my tail

The past few months have been hectic, hence my absence from the bloggers’ sphere. I’ve only just managed to catch up on all the wonderful posts from blogs I follow and can tell you it was a mammoth task! I’ve still to get back to finishing my next short story, though I am grateful to have a majority of it written. Just a few more scenes to write then the task of editing.

What I find rather frightening is how quickly this year has gone. I remember thinking back in January about the plans I had for the year and though I have achieved quite a few of my goals, there a many that may not even get off the runway. I am way behind querying agents; managed to get a few letters submitted yet feel the year is slipping away. A bit like the sand in the hour-glass (I remember the old soapy ‘Days of our Lives’ from when mum occasionally watched it. I can still hear the voice over!)

Still, chasing my tail is not a bad thing, it is a good reminder of what I need to do and somehow find the time to do them. And if I don’t then there’s always tomorrow.

    I agree with you. The year has gone by so quickly that is almost mind boggling. I do like your attitude “there is always tomorrow”. Is the only way to keep ones peace of mind.

    Wish you all the best in your short story!

    Oh my goodness, do I know the feeling! But you’re almost at the editing stage with the short story, that’s awesome – and a huge accomplishment when things are organized chaos due to needing more hours in the day!
