‘One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar’
~Helen Keller

Have you ever had those days where your mind is going a million miles an hour? Where ideas and things you want to do, to accomplish, to start, to finish are bottled up inside screaming to get out? You want to do it all. To accomplish everything in the space of a day, a week, or even a month?

That’s the way I have been feeling lately. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. I think I am too old to be ADHD :???: but can definitely emphasize with those that are.

I am presently working on two stories right now with a third in the ‘it’s rolling around in my mind’ stage. Neither of the two stories are getting very far along, but hope to set goals for them and get moving.

I wanna finish my paranormal THIS YEAR!

I wanna finish my sweet romance by December 1.

I wanna have my children’s book outlined by this summer.

I have realized that I will have to give up some things to accomplish these.

And, I have started by having my acrylic nails removed two weeks ago. The time and money I spend on those can go toward my writing.

I have also started closing the doors and drawers of the closets and cabinets that need cleaning. By closing the doors to my sons rooms and only cleaning the rooms that I have to live in will give me more time to write. When the smell gets too bad, I’ll hire a cleaning service to deal with it or make the boys do it themselves.

I will spend more of my weekends writing instead of doing things that amount to nothing. What time I spend with my husband will become more quality time instead of quantity time.

And I will run errands, grocery shop, and do laundry only on a specified day of the week.

Brenda and Dennie, have you picked yourself up off the floor yet? :lol:

I’ve been going through that same frenetic charge lately as well. I want to get three WIP’s done this year. Yeah, I know that sounds like a big effort, but I think I can do it. At least two. My historical is in such a flow, it sometimes feels like it is writing itself. Same with my erotica. I have a paranormal I did for a paranormal class I took and I wasn’t really all that hot to pursue it, but the instructors feel like it has some merit and deserves my attention.
