Busy Days Coming

It's Wordstock tomorrow in Portland; I'll spend a couple of hours on the VoiceCatcher stall, telling people all about the wonderful collection of essays, stories and poems by Portland Women Writers. The rest of the time I'll listen to speakers, meet writers, read books, buy books, find books, etc...

Next week I'm "going" to the Muse Online Conference. That's "going" as in "sitting still at the computer." But it's also "going" as in not going anywhere else. I'll be pitching a couple of novelette's as well, so please wish me luck.

The week after's when the oldest son visits, on his way to an interview. And the week after that the youngest son will be home filing application forms and sending off portfolios.

Christmas bazaar season starts at the beginning of November. I'll need to book a few more tables if I hope to sell more books.

Then Thanksgiving! Then Christmas! Then.... HELP!!!!!

Okay, I'm officially overwhelmed. Do I really have to go out and buy a new printer this afternoon? (If I hope to send any snail mail query letters to publishers, I guess I'd better. Ah well. That's life.)

Meanwhile, I'll keep trying to post a drabble-a-day on my drabble blog, and keep adding reviews of my books to my home page as and when I get permission.

I get that same feeling around this time of year. The holidays are barreling toward me and I'll be crushed by Christmas. Aaakkk.

The holiday freight train is barreling down the tracks... I'm trying to play ostrich in the sand. Good luck with all you've got going!

Stress stress stress! I feel it. I don't know if it's holidays-related...mostly just me taking on too much.
