Okay, one week to go to the next deadline, and this one is a doozy! Sorry, it kind of dominates my life right now, except . . .
Yes, I'm getting excited about the book signing, even though the new book isn't out yet. I have a new chapter down for Epitaph and another chapter "brewing." I'm anxious to spend some quality time with my keyboard, and yet, I'm at least getting intermittent time so I can keep my hand in it. It's a precarious balance, this working full time gig while entertaining the writing muse. Some days it's near impossible, and yet, here I am.
Taking deep breaths, knowing that soon the balance will shift.
Billy Joel said in a lecture that people who wondered if they could be musicians weren't. If you don't know, then you aren't. I believe the same applies to most artists. It's in your DNA. That being said, writing is something I've done all of my life. It took a while to get to where I am today, and I still have a ways to go (along with more juggling and more balancing). It's a part of who I am - the best is yet to come.
