I was suppose to post for Asana Stories yesterday but never got to it. I find myself extremely busy this week which is pretty much the same as the last one. I am currently in the throes of publishing prep for Ink & Ice – available one week from today! – and Seasons of Self: Spring & Summer. It dawned on me Saturday morning that Seasons of Self: Spring & Summer comes out in August, and I’m going to be doing the July session of Camp NaNoWriMo. Add in everything else I need to do in July and August, it is best that I get the poetry collection 100% ready right now. When not bogged down by non-writing writing stuff, I’ve been slowly working on decluttering. More often than not, the hours in the days quickly slip by and leave me utterly baffled about how a simple task can take so long to complete.
On the upside, I’ve been writing 3 to 5 poetry pieces a week so long as I leave the house to do it. If I continue my pattern of a once a week write-in, I should be done with Obiter & Oleander and Kirsch & Kerosene by the end of the month or darn close to being done. I’d really like to work on my plethora of other projects for July. Not sure why but these two poetry books seem more painful than they should be. I’m guessing timing and expectation are the culprits here. I plan not to push too hard on the deadline for Xenium & Xyris, Zephyr & Zinc, Elysian & Ether, and Nightmares & Nevermore. I really do not want and cannot afford a burnout right now – creative or otherwise.
Chaos – that is what I have right now….
