I do, I do, I do! This Indie Gig is awesome but it is also kicking my butt. I’m chief chef, cook and bottle washer (love that expression) and heaven forbid I have something in my personal “Karen” life to do … and I feel like I lose an entire year’s time in a couple of hours. I’m a really organized person so it’s not about making lists or working smarter or better. And the writing is getting done. It’s just … when I’m not working I want to be home working because I know what’s piling up! I also know my limitations and I need 8 hours of sleep, so working later or getting up earlier won’t be happening. And I need to add exercise back into my life. WAAH! I seriously need more hours in the day!

:coffee: know exactly how you feel, and time also seems to go by faster too. I had to learn to start saying No to some things ,. So hard but my things to do list was getting as big as my TBR list!
I think we all need more hours in the day. Luckily I don’t need much sleep so can often times get by with 4 or 5 hours and can still function. I find the more I have to do then the more organized I am to get things done. I’m a list maker – to do, groceries, errands, phone calls, paying bills, etc.
Sending hugs to help destress you since you’re writing doesn’t seem to be suffering! 🙂 :yourock:

I also felt that way in my working life. Then I changed to a 10 hour a day schedule and guess what . . . I still didn’t have enough hours in a day. Done working now so if I have extra hours I’d like them to be for play. Ill mother means that probably won’t happen for a while.
I totally agree. Sometimes I feel like the faster I go the more behind I get. Then other times everything goes great. Hang in there I’m sure you’ll get it all worked out to the best of your ability.
Hugs. I hear your pain and I don’t work. I’m always so busy.
Yep, some days me too! Otherwise, I will just keep plugging along…..
Hang in there, I know exactly how you feel.
I think we all feel like that sometimes.
Good luck with everything. I think you are doing great. I know what you mean about sleep I am the same I have to have my 8 hrs of sleep or I am EVIL! Also, Happy belated birthday… You will make it all workout. Tammy
Maybe it’s time to ask for help…other authors have “assistants”, “helpers”…it could work, right? And becoming Mistress of All is a great thing! Try to get some balance. It will work, I swear!
I definitely know how you are feeling. My problem is when I look at all I have to do I start getting overwhelmed & shut down, so nothing gets done. I know I will get to it soon enough. I just have to deal with the demons first.
Name me a woman, especially a mom with kids of any age at home, who doesn’t have this problem! 🙂
I thought it would get better after I retired. My friends who retired before me tried to tell me they were busier than ever. I should have believe them!
I always need more hours in a day. I think most of us do.
