Irons in the Fire

I’m good at multitasking, but one of the ways to keep from going crazy is to know your limitations. Next week marks three weeks until Colloquium–the real time the school year begins at our University–and I still have lots of work to do on my classes. Wednesday we meet to determine if we are ready to go live with the new website (of which I am webmaster), and I have nine of 20 brochures written that are due Sept. 1. So all that’s on my plate.

So as much as I hate to consider it, today marks the last day for me to work on Infinity’s Reach–at least for a while. Monday through Wednesday is set aside for Shelly and I to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary, so it’s not fair to her to be working on a book. And stopping now will give me a chance to go back over the chapters and massage them into better shape before continuing.

I have a bad habit of having too many books to write, and tend to want to write them all at the same time. But I’ve got to be realistic about what I can and can’t do. So I will continue to blog as time goes on, but there will be few if any writing samples in weeks to come. The exception will probably be the occasional short story, which is sort of a guilty pleasure.

Anyway, just wanted to give you a heads up. Later.
