|Home office this past Saturday. Big desk out; table, footstool and cat in :)|
So, the other day when an indie publisher got in touch with me about some work I might end up doing for them, my first thought was, "do I even have the time to look at the work?"
I'm still trying to establish a new rhythm for my life; have started writing more, but I didn't want to take on too much and then become overwhelmed.
"You have a stash of stories, don't you?" one of my friends asked when I expressed my concern about time restraints.
Oh yes, I do! So... we'll see how this works out, but if they like some of my moth-eaten drafts, I may not have to start the project from scratch. That would be nice.
As a writer heavily reliant on my work for income, I know all about investing time in projects that are either commissioned or that you know can easily find a market. But sometimes, you just have to write that story, even though there is a good possibility it will never be published.
Who knows? A potential publisher might eventually find you. Maybe.
