Multitasking=something Suzanne is REALLY bad at.
I'm a linear thinker and linear worker. Do Task A. Finish and move to Task B, then C. Okay, I'm kinda OCD. Just ask my crit partner, who makes relentless fun of my penchant for color-coding.
So, here I am today, getting a chapter of RIVER ROAD ready for my crit group tomorrow night. And massaging some plot problems out of STOCKHOLM. And creating story threads for ELYSIAN FIELDS, which will be the third in the D.J. Jaco series after ROYAL STREET and RIVER ROAD. The only manuscript being ignored, ironically, is the one that will be published first.
Because I'm still WAITING. Contracts from Tor are in the hands of my agent and should be winging their way to me next week or so. Then the revision letter. Then...then...then....everything else gets dropped on its head so ROYAL STREET can take the front seat.
Toto, I think we're multitasking.
