Word of the Week: Catch-Up!

 
 
 
 
 
I'm planning for a catch-up week that might stretch to more like a month. LOL 
 
My desk "pile" (overflowing into a box now...) has gotten a bit "unruly" as of late. LOL In particular, a backlog of books and also some products to review, over at: My Real Life Reviews .
 
I'm also waiting on several book reviews pending for my two new poetry books and more review copies coming in the mail right now, so I know how frustrating it can be to wait. My apologies to anyone who's sent me a book that I haven't reviewed yet. It is NOT forgotten.
 
I'm also working on my novel. Still going great but every time I think I'm almost done, the plot "takes off" in another direction! I'll take it though. So much better than the blank screen/page/mind syndrome. ;<) We've all been there, right?
 
I have a gazillion projects on the go but I know so well that focusing and finishing one at a time, is always the best course of action, if at all possible. Or alternately, having a goal of a portion to complete, on any given day. That works too, especially for larger projects.
 
So, it's catch-up week here. I hope I've inspired you to work on your own pile of projects too. It's soooo satisfying to get them completed!
 
Happy Week, G :<)

That's a big pile of projects to get through, but you'll do it. And that's not all of them, I know.

It is satisfying to finish a project.

Yes, you do have a pile of projects on the go, Ger!
But isn't it great to have all these projects available to work on ...it keeps life interesting!
Good luck on your novel, I enjoy hearing about your writing process.
You can be sure I'm near the front of the line, waiting to read it! :)
Hugs!

P.S. The boys have finally written their 2nd post over at their blog.

It's actually really neat to have lots of projects to catch up on... the fun thing is you get to choose!

Boy, what a perfect word for the week. Me Too!!
But such a satisfying feeling when the catch-up gets caught-up.
Happy week.
