I was sitting at home, pondering what to post for E. I was going to post about my name, but that isn't very interesting (apart from the fact that my mother chose to name me after her mother-in-law because they were very close, which is unusual for a woman and her MIL, I gather!).
Luckily, though, I happened on Rachelle's blog, and she postedabout the reality of being a published writer, and one of her points scared the life out of me. I yelped 'Eeep!' and a post was born. Fortunately, because neither 'Blind Terror' nor 'Oh Crap Time Management!' begins with E.
Rachelle points out that if you're contracted for three books, you may be simultaneously promoting Book One, editing Book Two and writing Book Three. While working, minding family, or doing whatever else you do.
I have no doubt it's manageable - I wrote 50,000 words in November almost entirely in my lunch hours, and I don't have an especially long work day - but it's always good to know what you're aiming to get into, so you can work on honing the skills you already have, figure out where your strengths and weaknesses are and ultimately create the skillset you need to pursue your dream.
Even though it makes you go 'Eeep!'.
