As I struggle to re-acclimate at work, it ha occurred to me it isn't going to happen. I learned this in grad school 20 years ago and I'm not sure why I can't remember it. When my person spends a 'full time job worth' engaged in a high brain activity, the REST of the day needs to be brainless.
And right now I AM WRITING BOOKS!!! At a frantic pace, mind you. And I'm making good progress.
SPEAKING of first readers... It is my opinion and nature that in a marathon, some people might poop out, so I was thinking I maybe needed SEVERAL early readers early on. HOPEFULLY I can hook all of them, but life happen anallat. So if ANYBODY is interested in jumping on as an early reader--giving feedback on these as I go, I'd be forever grateful. My only request is 2 week turnaround time.
Email me, if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any of the rest of you struggle with day job/writing brain wars?
