Juggling all the balls

I recently became a fully fledged member of Murderers’ Row. What’s that? Well, it’s a group of ten ITW authors who write blog posts about writing stuff, with the idea that its meant to help others but actually the writing of them helps to crystalise your own thoughts (in my case, anyway!)

My first regular post for The Thrill Begins, is about social media and how it can take over your life. You can read it here, and if you like, you can let me know what you think in the comments. The latest post on there is another life lesson, this time from Mark Pryor, on the truth about time management. Mark’s post is the first in a series called “THE TOUGH TIMES (and how I wrote through them)” – look out for a new post every Thursday, until 27th July.

LIFE UPDATE – I took a short social media break and yet I’m still trying to do a million things at once… so many things, that I decided to delete the to do list from this post because it scared me. But for anyone who saw it, all I’ve managed to do so far is unbox the futon and watch two episodes of Holby… *sigh* (OK, OK, I did a few other things too, like reading THIS AMAZING BOOK)
