It’s rapidly approaching that time of year when lists take over……
I like to think I’m a reasonably organised person in my real world, my work world and in my creative world. (OK, I can be a bit OCD about my lists)
Even on an average day, my world is “post it” driven as I work my way from one reminder to the next.
My laptop frequently has several “post its” stuck to it to remind of anything from a trip to the dentist to promo event reminders associated with my book babies. (There’s 3 on there as I type)
However, as the festive season approaches all too rapidly, longer lists start to over take the small square “post its”.
festive food lists
Christmas card and calendar lists
You get the picture!
There,there’s the 2018 Gig List to be added to the 2018 Calendar on 1 January. (It’s unlucky to hang the next year’s calendar before the year has begun so the dates need to wait on my list till then)
22 Feb – Brian Fallon
1Apr – Greta Van Fleet
16 Apr- The White Buffalo
This list is likely to grow considerably…….. 😉
Earlier today, I paused to take stock of the “Creative To Do” list for this week:
1- write more of book baby 4
2- promote the Silver Lake series ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coral-McCallum/e/B00VYU1SZ6/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_4?qid=1510864732&sr=8-4 )
3- promote my Good Reads giveaway – its running till 3 Dec.(https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/261202-bonded-souls )
4- type up book baby 4 – target to reach 15k words
5- write and post blog
6- prep interview for blog (watch this space!)
I’ll not embarrass myself by confessing to how few have been ticked off……
Then, there’s a second, until now, unwritten list…. “The Waiting To Be Written” list:
1- book baby 4 ( ok, it’s nearly there!)
2- book 4 in the Silver Lake series ( write 2018/publish 2019)
3- next part to Silently Watching short story series ( I have half a plan for this!)
4- next part to The Soul Searcher short story series( eh….no clue what’s going to happen next)
5-next part to the Still As A Statue short story series ( maybe a bit of a clue where this one will end…)
6-next part of The Imp – remember him? (I do know where I am going with it…honest!)
Maybe I should start with a wish list…
I’ve been a really good girl this year (well, most of the time). Can I please have a Time Turner like Hermione’s from Harry Potter so I can conjure up enough hours in every day to get through my To Do list.
Hope you like the milk and mince pie.
