I’m drowning in writing busyness but no “real” writing is getting done.
I’m working on several book reviews, including one national-market book in which I must interview the author. Eeek! I’m scared! There’s a heavy amount of reading to be done.
I also prepare for and teach a writing class for teens. I love it! Please don’t say I should give it up.
I have to admit, I really like seeing my name in the newspaper. But in the meantime, I barely get five pages written each week. FIVE PAGES FOR A WHOLE WEEK.
If they were polished pages, that would be perhaps different. But they are more like draft-level. This is even a bit less than a nano-writer has to produce EVERY SINGLE DAY.
This is to say nothing of regular busyness, like family stuff, church stuff, teaching piano, being the midnight bookkeeper for the family business. EVERYONE is busy, right? Others find that balance. So must I.
Productivity is not happening over here.
