I am exhausted!
The workload since Labor Day has been monumental. I have read 4 300-page (some a little longer) manuscripts and at least 10 partials since the 4th, done 3 contracts, had too many meetings and managed to fit in five or six Yankee games at the ballpark (they clinched this evening!), as well as a concert or two (Rush and Gov't Mule).
I feel like I have made a thousand submissions, but it's more like 200.
Any the work keeps on piling up.
I had two old clients deliver new work out of the blue which I had to fold into the workload (and they are both terrific projects).
Every weekend has been jam-packed with family stuff, leaving me little extra time to catch up.
And tomorrow I leave for a writer's conference in Virginia, where I get to see three of my clients I haven't seen for at least 5 years.
But this is all good news too, because I am getting great response to the material I submitted and expect to have three offers on the table by next week, and another two or three by the following week.
And maybe then I can catch my breath?
