After a 14-day flu, I'm left with a cold, (nothing that should stop me from jumping back into a tight schedule) and I'm trying desperately to get back to work.
It's harder said than done. And now I'm reeling with guilt for not knowing exactly how to do that.
In the proverbial wings, I'm waiting for my editor to start me on a journey of rewrites for Broken But Not Dead. She said we'd begin after Christmas, which is open to interpretation. What does "After Christmas" actually mean?
There really is no rush, Broken isn't due to be released until 2011. So, the way I see it, I could do one of seven things:
1. Revise one of four finished manuscripts. It's too late for Dead Witness.
2. Continue on the first draft of Dead Wrong.
3. Do housework instead; oddly, there's a lot of it.
5. Scratch housework and read the novels piling up on my desk. (Halfway through Don Maass' Breakout Novel Workbook)
6. Start new children's book that's coming to life at back of my mind.
7. Or, get all other aspects of life in order so I can concentrate 100% on editing Broken when "After Christmas" arrives.
