Right now I can't think of any perks of being a workaholic but I do need to try to convince myself there are some, because I'm buried in work ( a good thing for the self-employed) but it's also exhausting.
I'm still fielding editorial queries ( 7 chapters done, one more to go on one book) and preparing for another manuscript handover, for which I'm ridiculously late in terms of finishing the tasks I need to do before the editors can start working on it. As if that's not enough, one of my authors bailed on me. She says on second thought, what I'm asking for is very difficult and she doesn't think that she will be able to deliver. Deadline is next week or so; so finding a replacement is not something I want to do. I may end up writing the chapter myself. Gah!
The week ( and October) is ending. How was it? Did you accomplish what you wanted to? Are you getting into the festive season mood now? Or is it still full steam ahead for you? Have you started planning for 2012?
