I'm sure you all know the popular saying about eating an elephant "one bite at a time." So that's what I decided to do about my creative writing project. Instead of worrying about whether I will have the time to finish the novel, I polished the synopsis over the weekend and submitted it.
If the publisher approves it, then I finish the chapter outline and first chapter and send them in. If those are approved, then I will be doubly motivated to make the time to write it, because I will have a contract on hand. Wish me luck:-)
