Prioritizing Equal Tasks: What’s a Girl to Do?
Hello, in-the-Buffers! Today’s post will be shorter than the usual Wednesday rendering, because today’s Naked Truth is that I’m in over my head with personal deadlines, and also on promises made on turnarounds for critiques and edits of other authors’ work. The personal deadlines will take a back seat to the promises, because as you know, the “P” word is golden with me. Also, I love being of service to other writers, so those promises are obligations of joy.
The above being true, I have an important question for you: How do you prioritize work when the importance of each task is equal?
While you ponder an answer to that question—and I hope you’ll leave an answer in the comments because I need some tips, Buttercup!—I have a few announcements to make.
- Wednesday, August 26: Next week I’m blog swapping with author Sherry Ewing. Sherry will be posting here at Writing in the Buff, and I’ll be delivering the Naked Truth on her blog, answering some interview questions. I know you’ll enjoy meeting Sherry here, and I do hope you’ll visit me at her website, too.
- Thursday, August 27: Next Thursday I’ll be guest posting on the blog of author Gemma Brocato. Gemma has asked that I offer up five “fun facts” about myself. Are there any things in particular you wonder, with regard to yours truly, about which you’d like me to dish? Leave your suggestions in the comments!
- Wednesday, September 2: Another blog swap, this time with author Kim Loraine. Kim and I have left the format wide open, so if there’s some Naked Truth you believe should be divulged, let me know. Otherwise, please trust that we’ll do our best to entertain you.
- Saturday, September 12: Please mark your calendar for an author event being held on Saturday, September 12th at the Barnes & Noble in Snellville, Georgia. I was invited to participate in a panel with five other authors, each representing a different genre. We’ll talk about our novels, answer questions, do a book signing, and chat with visitors. More info to follow as we near the event. I hope to see you there!
Now back to the big question? How do you prioritize work when the importance of each task is equal? Please leave a comment! Help me out with a little Naked Truth of your own.
Thanks for visiting Writing in the Buff. See you Friday for Observations From the Tub!
Have a great Wednesday –
