|Still from the movie Black Water|
Right now, I'm a writer swimming underwater. Each time I surface at the Cyber-bistro, I gasp for air before returning to the murky waters of my chaotic life. My schedule is divided like slices of pizza. Every writer faces this, especially when deadlines are looming. I cannot create more minutes in a day, however, I can manage my writing time more efficiently. I'm getting better at holding my breath underwater. When my novel is published on March 17, I plan to come up for air and float on the surface for a while. For now, I will keep swimming until the final chapter is complete.
