I was thinking today, a dangerous business, I know, (anyone? Anyone?) and I Thoth about my style of accomplishing things, in work, at home, in relationships, in my hobbies….and I discovered one constant. I am always juggling about ten different things at once, if not more. Teaching and tutoring? I help with fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, and twelfth graders in math, science, social studies, and English. Hobbies? Crochet, flower arranging, drawing, painting, baking, cooking, music, sewing, photography… Cleaning my house is almost always an all day thing since I clean, do laundry, wash dishes, and organize my room all at the same time.
My point in this is that with very other part if my life, I multitask. I never work on just one project, and somehow, it still all gets done eventually. So why am I insisting in working only on ones rioting project right now?it seems a bit silly, and I think it might be part if why I am finding it so hard to finish it. I have been reading all these other writers about how to be a good writer, how to finish your projects, how to make it a career, and not looking at my own writing style and what comes naturally to me.
So I decided that it doesn’t matter how other people write. I need to work the way I work best–on a millions if fervent projects at once. Because that keeps my creativity flowing. It makes me have to be creative in my project juggling. And it challenges me to finish multiple things, not just one.
Oh yeah…also I am getting married in November. I haven’t updated in awhile, so I thought the blog world might want to know. No biggie. 😉
