Hi and welcome to Friday Fun Facts! Come play along and learn something new about me, and I’ll learn something new about you.
Whew, what a busy week I’ve had. Actually, what a busy several weeks. I’m not complaining, but it’s been hard to juggle everything I’ve needed to get done in the 24 hours I’m given each day. But I know I’m not the only one there…many of you have the same issues 🙂
Over the last month I’ve had edits and revisions for 2 books, then galleys, all the while working my day job complete with a new computer system training session as well as getting ready for my blog tour for Some Like it in Handcuffs—which is releasing in 14 short days…YAY. I’ve been writing guest blogs and filling out questionnaires like a crazed woman. Then to top it off I decided to join another blog with one of the critique groups I belong to. Even though I’m only obligated to 1 blog a month, it seemed to add just one more straw to the already sagging pile and I could fee the pressure.
But really, I’m loving it even though I had moments of overwhelming stress…lol. Why?…because most of what I’m doing are things I want to do and am excited about 🙂
The only thought at the back of my mind was if I’d be able to get everything finished. And if I did, would it all come out right? Would my guest blogs make sense? Would my interview questions be answered fully or would I fall asleep in the middle of writing down an answer, forget I didn’t’ finish it and send it off? Lol Then training at work…I won’t even touch that one. And the revisions and galleys were something I enjoyed, but nail-biting for sure.
All the while I felt like I was running in quicksand. I even told my youngest son one night, as I was pounding away on the keyboard answering interview questions, that I wished I could just snap my fingers and everything would be completed.
He laughed, smiled at me with more wisdom than a 16 year old should have and stated it in simple terms. “If only you had super powers.”
Stop the press! Damn straight. If only.
What if I had the ability to move with super speed? Imagine how I could get all the tasks that would normally take me a week done in one day. What would I do with all my spare time? Yep, I’d write. But I’d turn off the super speed so I could enjoy my story and characters and savor every moment.
Or maybe I would want to fly? How awesome would it be to go wherever you wanted by just jumping in the air and taking off? I could’ve hand delivered all those questionnaires and guest blogs…lol. And then zipped on over to Hawaii, Jamaca, London, Ireland…oh the possibilities. And I’d still have been home in time for dinner with the family…lol
What about being invisible? Nah, I really don’t have a use for that. I’d feel to bad listening in on conversations because people thought they were alone.
Maybe super strength? That’d come in handy when I’m vacuuming. How nice to be able to lift the sofa with one hand while vacuuming underneath it. LOL…other than that I guess I wouldn’t have much use for it.
Of course if I did have some special power, like mental telepathy or teleportation…imagine the fun I could have with my kids…they’d never have gotten away with much. lol
Which brings me to today’s Friday Fun Fact question….Drum roll please…
If you could have the ability to have any super power…be it something well known or something you make up—like the ability to be dressed and ready for your day with the snap of your fingers—what would you choose and why?
Looking forward to reading your answers.
