Feast or Famine

I tell you, that's how it feels going from a two year break between releases to tripping over blog tour dates because I have so many releases this year. (Evermine, A Hint of Frost, Eversworn, Wicked Kin)

I guess it's good practice, in a way. I'm so frantic over the releases I have coming up and the edits I'm doing now and the project due out the door by Monday, that I'm willing to try anything to lessen the stress. That means trying new things promo wise, as far as having someone else organize my blog tours for me. That means cutting back on time online to get the work done. That also means *sob* lessening my time in my favorite writer's chat room because, yeah. I go there to chat. We do sprints and things, which works for me as far as edits go, but I rarely get any hardcore writing done unless I'm unplugged and in my writer-y zone.

It's just odd to go from wondering if I'll ever have another release to wondering how I'm going to put dinner on the table and still meet my deadlines. It's an awesome problem to have, don't get me wrong. And I'm hoping by the end of the year, this insanity will have taught me some new survival tips.

This is a make it or break it year for me, I think, in so many ways.

Feast or famine. It's the story of my life. ;)

How about y'all? Do you think the good things come in threes rule applies to your writing life? How about bad things come in threes? Do you find it easier to work when you're on a roll?
