Life is very varied at the moment – and very busy! I’m really enjoying all the things I’m involved in, especially my time spent working as an editor for Magnet.
However, variety does come with challenges. Yesterday I sat down and got out the draft of my book on memory on faith, working through the chapter outline and preparing my proposal. But it took me a long time simply to catch up – to remember where I was, to re-familiarise myself, to tune in. I needed to immerse myself in that one thing in order to be able to re-establish my working rhythm.
I’m very aware I need to spend some significant time on it – not pockets here and there but consistently, so that I’m not constantly playing catch up. Hopefully there will come a point where I am able to do that!
What about you?
How do you balance longer and shorter projects? Especially when there are other deadlines and commitments in your life?
