Writing + Personal Life = Overstimulation

Since I’ve started my new contract position, I’ve started to feel exhausted, but not tired. Let me explain.

I was talking with my dear friend Abbe and was explaining how exhaustion was a good thing. I’ve started to dive back into my creative self since taking on this contract position and have found that my mind wanders in 80 different directions because the content flows so freely from my head. Sometimes I type so fast that I what I wrote would make no sense to anyone if published without a good reread. I feel alive again.I feel motivated. I want to succeed. I’m overstimulated.

The only issue with this overload of words and ideas, is my mind continues to go on and on and on. The to-do list is my head is longer than the one I put on paper and I’m starting to feel like I’m juggling to much. Then I think about cutting back on something. And then I remember that almost everything I do now I love, and the one thing that I could cut is a necessity right now.

So I ask you, my readers, how do you deal with the juggling process? Do you write a super long to-do list and not complete it? How do you balance all of your balls in the air? Leave me your strategies in the comments below! I’ll share the best ones in an upcoming blog post!
