Priorties. I need them. I feel like that proverbial chicken flopping around with no head. Sometimes I get impulsive and say yes to things that I should have considered more calmly as it related to the whole scheme of things. Deadlines. Distractions. AADD*. This message from the Universe popped up in my inbox yesterday. Perfect timing?
Actually, Silver, when you think about it, everything boils down to priorities. Everything.
And that’s a lot.

And too often, Silver, it’s the priority of “being right,” that wins out over all the others.
I don’t care about being right. I care about the promises I made to readers and editors. I have a new release out, part of a box set that includes NIGHT SHIFT (Nightriders MC #1) and the previously unpublished REMEMBER THE NIGHT, a Nightriders MC novella. I have NIGHT MOVES (Nightriders MC #2) almost ready to upload but no time to properly market it. 😦 Still, I’ll get that done before my projected June 1st release date. I have a hard deadline of June 14th for the next Red Dirt manuscript. I’m about 13K words into. I need 2K words a day to stay on track. I have a book signing on Saturday that will take me away from the computer all day so I need to add those words in to another day(s). Did I mention I need to advertise and market? And family obligations. Wheeee!
Yeah, feeling a little overwhelmed. So…this message? Yeah, I made decisions that just added to the stress but once I get my priorities straight, everything will be all right, which is better than “being right.” Right?
