It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here in Scott-Land. I’m rushing to finish a novel and a novella, both due to the publisher by the end of December.
And at the same time, I’ve been hit by edits for my first novel, “Skythane”, edits for “Wonderland”, a novella appearing in the upcoming “This Wish Tonight” anthology from Mischief Corner Books”, my weekly “River City” chapters, and chapter requests for my other serial project with MCB, “Marionettes in the Mist.”
It seems like I just get one thing off my desk and pivot back to the novel when another one lands there with a heavy “thud”.
But at last, I have finished my first draft of my second novel. My desk is cleared, writing-wise. And I have two days to get it ready for beta.
I have yet to figure out some amazing, super-organized way to keep this from happening. Instead I just slog through one thing after another until there are no more things.
How do you juggle writing and editing and planning so it all gets done on time?
