In case you’re wondering, the blog post title refers to the sound my brain is going to make when it finally decides to shut down. As if I didn’t have enough on my plate, I decided to join Romance Divas‘ Fast Draft in order to push myself to get as much writing as humanly possible done before Peanut arrives. In theory, this is actually a spectacular idea. I have a two WIPs in various stages of completion. One is almost at the halfway point, the other is just past it. If I could finish ONE of these, I’d have a story to edit/obsess over in my spare time post-labor and delivery and I could do that with printed pages and red pen, without having to set foot at the computer desk! This way, I could focus on Peanut and work only when the mood is right.
Only problem is that my brain feels like it’s stretched thin! Most days, I can’t manage enough energy to concentrate on when the last time was I ate. I’ve got scenes swirling around in my head, to-do lists forming in a dusty corner of the mind, the names of paint colors imprinted on the back of my eyelids, and promotional posters/cds/and cupcakes to make for a book signing first week of February! *_*
How am I ever going to get all this done? Should I hire a body double and spend a day at the spa? I’ll just put in a request for a Mary Poppins w/out the distracting singing.
