It's almost the end of the second month of 2009 and I need to revisit my goals for the year.
I had planned to enter the Daphne with two mysteries. The deadline is March 16. Only 15 pgs and a short synopsis. How hard could it be? The problem is I have to take my focus off my Desire revisions that I'm in the middle of - put them aside for a couple of weeks. I'm just about to rewrite the next few chapters of An Unsuitable Mistress because they no longer fit. I also plan to enter the Desire pitch contest with a new MS - and that is supposed to be in June. If I don't get started on the new MS soon, it won't be ready. See my dilemma? I can't do both.
I believe strongly in the power of focus. Taking your eye off the prize everytime something new and shiny catches your attention is a sure way not to finish anything - and not achieve anything.
Putting it down in black and white like that, makes the decision clear, doesn't it?
Focus on the Desire.
