Stick to the Knitting
I've posted before about the book of short stories at the publisher. Today, the really, really good editor lets me know in no uncertain terms that I need to perform some massive re-writes and tightening and fact checking on some key scenes.
As I'm in the middle of tax season, I laid my head on my keyboard for a while and tried to knock myself unconscious.
I raised my head to find an email from my daughter with the above cartoon which seems to speak to me.
There is no room for multi-tasking if you want to be a writer.
Or tax accountant.
PS (added later).
I was saving this award from Jenny at South Belfast Diary for a down day, so here it is. Boy, do I need cheering up today! Thanks, Jenny.
