  1. If I don’t get finished with publishing the second in the trilogy and on to writing the third, I think I’m going to spontaneously combust!

    It was fun the first time; I’m supposed to be getting help the second time; and it’s taking forever to be stuck in a paperwork project that HAS to be done.

    I love the writing; the ‘having written and needing to do the rest of the work,’ not so much.

    BTW, you may not be able to edit a blank page – but you can always fill it. Even blather gets you moving.
