Time - Is There Ever Enough?

The old saying goes, "Time flies when you're having fun." I say, "Are we having fun yet?" This week is literally flying by. It's already Wednesday and tomorrow I join the other ACFW board members for our annual Spring meeting. I'll be with them tomorrow through Sunday, and before that I have a to-do list as long as my arm. There are things not on the list I haven't yet done like post the latest info on the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance book of the week. Come to think of it, I missed last week too!

I'm still hard at work on the synopsis of MFB. This by far is the hardest element of the book proposal. Is it too long? Do I keep in too many details? How many details do I need in a mystery synopsis? Can I leave out some of the clues? Egad. I'd also like to get my submission of the first pages to the ACFW Genesis contest before I leave for the meeting. Then there's packing, making sure my cat is taken care of, etc. etc.

To top it off, this coming Sunday is the switch to Daylight Savings time! Even one less hour of sleep when I'll probably be sleep deprived. When I get home Sunday afternoon I'll probably collapse on the couch until Monday morning!

But, I am really looking forward to seeing the other board members and working out details for this year's conference in Dallas. It'll also be bitter-sweet as it will be my last Spring board meeting since my term as Secretary will be over this coming fall. By December 1st I'll once again be a member-at-large. So I go into this weekend, praying for energy to stay alert and take the necessary minutes and to enjoy the fellowship and company of the others. I am so blessed to have been able to serve ACFW in this capacity for almost three years now.

I'll be back next week sharing more about this incredible writer's journey.
