If Only I Were as Good at Multi-tasking as I am at Dreaming...

In high school, I gave up lunch to take Latin (Yes, I was that nerdy) I juggled eight subjects with ease. Today, I am lucky if I can fold clothes and talk on the phone at the same time. So, it's no wonder I am having trouble writing, critiquing, subbing, promoting, and blogging. Last week, I was in a critiquing frenzy. This week I am subbing Pigs with a vengeance. Blogging has fallen by the wayside. And poor Hop! Plop! didn't get much a birthday bash. (Let's hope I do a better job for Josh who is turning four in June) I just can't manage it all!

But I am determined that Pigs gets published no matter what! I am obsessed with marketing plans for that book. I already picture myself visiting schools in a karate "gi". I have visions of viral videos. I can see it selling in every dojo in the country. Even in other countries! The possibilities are endless. All, I need is to get an editor on board!

When you're at those schools, maybe you could get the kids to fold your laundry while you read to them.
Just an idea :~)

i totally understand! I have way too much on my plate and I'm not able to juggle things like I used to.

Anyhow, I hope you get an editor asap!

Folding laundry and talking on the phone will only give you a sore neck anyway! :-) So exciting to hear about all your marketing ideas! Good luck!!!

Corey,

I can relate! That's why I am LOVING this spring break. I've been able to write and spend time with my kids and sleep in!

It's good that you have such plans for your pigs story. Do you have plans for any of ours too?

;-)
