This is probably not good

It's Christmas, and I've been doing line-edits for three hours. I've done other stuff, too - exercised, made a roast, took some food to Paul (the homeless guy), opened gifts, watched part of the first season of Desperate Housewives (which I haven't seen before).

This next year I think I will actually have some free time. But not for another month at least. And I have these line edits due, and a draft of another book due March 28. And that book needs another 55,000 words.

I have been working flat out for over a year now. Full time at my demanding job plus juggling two or more books at all times. Plus about one personal crisis per month - health, family, etc.

I just hope that when I have free time I can actually use it. I'm afraid I'll just freak out or implode or something.

Has anyone else made the leap from working full time and writing to just writng full time? Did you stay sane?
