Time Vs. Creativity

I have several creative projects ongoing at the moment, and the real challenge has been to divide my time between editing, painting, design, and website maintenance. I use my downtime at work to edit my novel, and am at the half-way point at page 205. The final illustration painting for the novel, which will be used in a later promotion, has been fully sketched out and is awaiting painting. Meanwhile, I’ve begun working on three new painted furniture projects. These have been primed, and the designs for them are in the process of being transferred to the table surface for painting. Of these 3 separate endeavors, the illustration will be the easiest, as I have to do now is paint it. Editing requires not only reading and re-writing, but formatting the finished result into both e-book and printed formats, and uploading them to their respective sites. Despite all this, I am shooting to complete all of them by the end of August, so stay tuned!
