Since the end of September, my to-write list has changed this much:
talassio 3rd (+ hounds + malcolm)
olives & lemons
para voice in all
loneliest woman in the world
rare birds ver 2
m. linard – have ending now
the other fsotu thing
the other other fsotu thing
Though I should also note that I have rewritten about 20k of Talassio . . . or approximately 1/6.
I have complained about the live-work-writing balance so very much that I’m sick of hearing myself, but in truth I’m wondering if I need to start scheduling writing field trips, say to the coffee shop or the library. This time of year triggers a lot of anxiety for me, and not getting writing-work done only makes it worse, so it becomes a kind of downward spiral. The trick, as always, is to create a time where the most important task is writing, where there’s nothing else that I feel I should be doing at that moment . . . and I won’t get interrupted. Harder to do at the end of the year.
