Juggling Chainsaws

This is one of those weeks where I feel like I'm juggling chainsaws. I have so much coming in and going out that it is hard to keep the balls in the air. This week alone I have:

• Publishing TEoP
• Due date for DAW anthology stories (Complication: 4 authors dropped out in the 10 days, needed to find pinch hitters.)
• Due date for Beast Within 2 anthology stories
• Follow up with interns
• Follow up on contract #1
• Follow up on contract #2
• Follow up on contract #3
• Pays the bills work

It doesn't seem like a lot but it is. Especially the DAW anthology with scrambling for good tier 1 (personal classification) authors who can get me what I need in a timely manner. TEoP needs more time because all new stories. Three new authors.

There's more on the plate for next week including stories and an RPG supplement I need to finish writing. Can't talk about most of it. But it's there. Then little things like people wanting to talk to me about stuff going on with Apex. Or to talk anthologies. Or writing. Or whatever else. Then there are the things I'm putting off because I just don't have time.

It's taken me two days to write this far into this post. "I would blog about that if I had time."

I have an hour between now and a phone call. I think I'm going to work on one of the stories I have due.

This post seems calm. The poster is not nearly so calm. Juggling chainsaws and hoping I don't get cut.

If you looking for pinch hitters, I'm available I don't have any hard deadlines for months.

Thanks, Jason. Appreciate it. But I already did the scrambling earlier this week. :) That's why it took two days to write the one post.
