Today I'm struggling with two very contradictory feelings. That is, my publication date is too far away and I still don't have enough time to get everything done I want to get done.
The reason I say the publication too far off, is that I really want to get to the end of this part of the process. It has been a very long journey. I started writing notes for this story three years ago. I completed the first draft 24 months ago. And it's still three months before anyone will be able to buy my book. I just can't hardly stand waiting any longer.
At the same time, there is still so much to do. I need to finish a class on Skillshare. I need to get the map done. I need to come up with a cover idea. I need to get my marketing plan in order. And about 30 other things. It's crazy!
Sometimes, a feeling sneaks up on me that I'm biting off more than I can chew, that I should have aimed a little lower for what I wanted. Then I smack that idea right out of my head. I want it all, or at least, I want to experience it all. Writing a book and publishing it is so hard and such a rare thing, there's no reason to go only half way. I'm going all the way, even if it ends in disaster (I don't think it will, but it might). So no fear from here. My head is down, and I'm pushing my way through.
