So My Head is Much too Full

Ever have one of those days where you have way too many ideas? Too many things to do? Right now, I have  one of those weeks were I am filled with ideas and things I want to do. It can and does make a person go crazy.

Since I am not only a writer but I am a crafter so my mind is normally split in two. I have an online store and my mind is thinking Christmas and Halloween. Things to make for both holidays. Although I did accomplish one item on my holiday to do list. But I get all these ideas to make things and really there is not enough time in the day to do everything at once.  So yeah, I have tons of ideas for my store.

I am a freelance writer and I am working on a job, writing flash fiction stories, should be a snap because the stories are only 1000 words. My ideas suck or I don't think I can do them in a 1000 words and I would rather be working on a story I started a month or so ago because this particular story is going to be a long one. I don't know what will become of it because it is not done yet. Not only that I am trying to figure out how to get my name out there in the world that won't cost me a lot of money. My husband suggested I make a flyer and then go to places and hang it up. Made the flyer even went to Staples for printing but now I got to get out there and start hanging up the flyers.

Now I want to bring your attention to the sidebar, after all my ebooks there is new badge which my husband and I worked on together.  It looks this. My husband suggested I make something on my own for my blog. The haiku comes from the haiku project I worked on last year. In my opinion, it is one of the haiku I really like. I have over 1000 haiku to go through (and I still have three months to type yet) and I am overwhelmed.  Overwhelmed because  I have no idea how to select haiku for the final book. How do I format a book of haiku and how should I organize them? From what I gather on the web, is I should trust my own instincts on my work. And isn't it true? You may read this advice or that advice and nothing makes any sense and maybe doesn't work for you. Writing, publishing, is everything by trial and error. And of course it is a journey for yourself.  I truly believe that my time is coming but before my time comes I have to be ready. As mystical as that sounds, maybe I am not ready yet  or maybe I am. Who knows until it happens.

By the way if you really like the badge please feel free to pass it around.

So I have nothing more to write on here but I have plenty of projects that need attending so I better get working. Until next time, keep the light on because the night is  always full of shadows.
