Moving On

This month was a month of deadlines for me, but as of today I have met all but one of them. I can almost feel the relief hovering close by. I turned in an article this morning and mailed off my screenplay today at the post office. I was so excited about this but since I was at the mall post office, there wasn't really anyone to celebrate with. And the postal lady didn't seem to get while I was smiling. Still, I am very pleased with all the changes I made and even if I don't win the competition, I'm glad I at least made the effort.

Another project, the one I am not quite done with, is in its final stages. I feel like it just needs a tweak here and there abd then it will off to the publishers. Publishers aren't very...quick with these types of things so I know I'm in for a bit of a wait to hear back about this new series.

In the meantime...

I don't know!

I have learned this much about myself - I work best under deadlines. And since I won't have one, I need to figure out what to work on next and create my own deadlines.

The possibilites are:

> another screenplay (already plotted out, just needs to be written)
> another book proposal (on a new adult novel I'd love to sell)
> or...something else?

I could work on both but frankly I'm not very good at that either (work to your strengths!). I do know that I don't want to waste time surfing the Internet or answering e-mail. So now I will finish this other project up and trust that God will give me an answer to my dilemma. I am torn, and will gladly work on either project but since He knows what should come first, I'll trust the One who knows!

New projects always give me a thrill (almost as much as finishing a project). It gives me a chance to ponder and dream - so it should be a nice weekend. They say it may even snow...
