Do you ever wish you had a super efficient clone to handle the business side of the author's life so you could concentrate on dealing with the Muse and the computer keyboard? I sure do!
There are days (and weeks and months) when it seems I spend far more time searching for markets, following up on submissions that never got accepted or rejected, and chasing overdue payments than I do writing.
If the day by day detail drudgery doesn't detract from writing time, it's because I've given up silly little luxuries like eating or sleeping.
Since cloning is obviously not the solution, what do you do to balance business and creativity?
If you registered for The Muse Online Writers Conference, remember to sign up for BURN THOSE BUNNY SLIPPERS AND BECOME THE SUCCESSFUL WRITER YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE ... Chat Monday, Oct. 13 9 a.m. EST and all-week workshop. It will be my pleasure to "meet" you and work with you!
May the Muse be kind!!
