On my (mobile) desk

Once a week I escape (yes, that is exactly how it feels) to work outside the house. If I'm lucky, I get 2 hours before heading back to reality. Today is one of those days. I have a bag packed with scribbled up manuscripts in varying states of progress. Lately, they only emerge once a week, which actually makes them more interesting to tackle. I think I have 6 manuscripts I'm juggling in this manner. And for now, it works. Participating in the 12x12 in 2012 challenge and PiBoIdMo in 2011 has been a huge motivator. I jot down notes, and try not to dwell on the endgame (publishing) so much that I'm paralyzed by anxiety. And with that, I must get back to work! And so must you, dear readers!!! :)

Sometimes, just knowing that you have a really limited amount of time to get stuff done can instill a hyper-focus, I find! I wish that for you today!! and I agree, it never does any good to focus on the end game. I love the saying "The journey is the destination", it is so true. The destination is simply the by-product of the journey! XOXO!!
