This past week I've been preparing for the presentations I'll be doing at a conference in April. Spending so much time and energy on this made me realize something.
I'm wearing more than just the writer hat. So I decided to keep track of what I do in a given week. Now, don't freak out (Jonathan) because I didn't do any math. I just took a good, hard look at my writing time and wrote down how I spent it.
Because I wasn't writing. I wasn't working on my MS. (We're having issues again. We need literary therapy.)
I've hung up my "Writer/Reviser" hat.
Instead I've been wearing my Critique Partner hat. My Friend hat. Query Ninja. PowerPoint Presentation Maker. Reader. Outliner (shudder). Copier. Google Image Searcher. Blogger. Commenter. Social Networker.
And that doesn't even go into my personal life hats. That's just what I did during my alloted writing time.
How many hats do you have? Which one are you wearing the most right now? I really need to get back to the Writer one. I'm the happiest in that hat. I miss that hat.
