Extreme multi-tasking

Standard

Have I ever shared with you that being a writer is hard work? I may not have but I will go ahead and let you know now about this career of mine. First of all, I love to write. I don’t think I was put on this earth to do anything else. My major goal in life is to publish as many books as possible and touch as many people as needed. I know it isn’t as noble as healing the sick or as glamorous as being a reality show celebrity however, it is what motivates me.

My fingers are glued to this keyboard.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I am glued to this laptop. If I can’t get to my laptop, best believe that pen and paper are close by. My mind is on overdrive, racing with plots, settings and characters.  Constantly, I plan, edit and re-edit. I am so lost in the creative process that often the business side of it gets lost along the way.

Oh, you didn’t know about the business of writing? Keeping up with my social networking has always been a daunting task. Hootsuite has become my page administrator for five different social networks. Writing only takes up about 30% of what I do on my well-worn keyboard. I push to force my body to stay awake long past its limit until my fiancee finds me dozing at my desk.

I must be crazy because I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
