H is for HOW


H is for HOW THE CRAP AM I SUPPOSED TO KEEP UP? Man, did I take on a mountain of obligation when I decided to do this A-Z challenge at the same time my book was released. Throw in the fact that I run my own business and you can see why I’m pulling my hair out. Book promotions, planning blog tours, trying to find a site for a release party, ordering copies to sell; you get the picture. Anyone else have this problem? I wish I could at least read ten blogs a day from the A-Z list, but that’s a pipe dream at this point. I think we all have too many irons in the fire. Can we just slowwwwww dowwwwn? Must everything be done today, right this minute? Oh! And just when am I supposed to get some writing done on my next book. Wait! I see an opening in my schedule between midnight and three AM.

I am having the same problem, and I am not even busy! Sometimes I can't even think about anything to write about, and there is only one hour left in the day.

Here's hoping we don't give up

*sigh* So true . . . I really need to get some books read and reviews done, but I feel I don't have the time to sit down and read, and when I do I'm stressed and can't really sit still :(

ha! you and me both. I used to just focus on my writing, but now I am blogging and reading and trying to comment, and I am exhausted! The leftover Easter candy is helping, but a sugar-high can only take you so far.......

best,

I was so overwhelmed too when I first joined the A-Z. But I learned my lesson from last year and finished writing all my posts in March. Now I'm just focusing on visiting the 1800+ blogs, which is still a big feat!

That's why it's called a Challenge! :) I see you've skipped some letters. Slow down, take a deep breath and re-evaluate. The most challenging part for me is visiting so many blogs but that's how we get followers so I'm giving it my best shot. :)

The writing I haven't had such a problem with. It's trying to get to so many other blogs that's been challenging. Keep at it! Even if they're short, at lease they're something.

Good luck with the remainder of the challenge!

They say if you want something done ask a busy person. I believe you qualify. I'm sure you will accomplish everything you set out to do. Thanks for the wonderful blog. keep up the good work.
