Overwhelmed? Reprint of “Pulverize Pressure” in Latest Issue of The BroadSheet

If your life’s been anything like mine lately, you might be feeling overwhelmed with too much to do to the point at which you’re facing—or are already in—burnout.

March’s issue of The BroadSheet—the journal of Broad Universe, a national organization that promotes science fiction, fantasy and horror written by women—features my article “Building Better Balance: How to Pulverize Pressure and Plus Productivity,” which was originally printed in writer Tamara Linse’s blog on March 4, 2010. To read the article, visit here: http://www.broaduniverse.org/broadsheet-archive/building-better-balance-how-to-pulverize-pressure-and-plus-productivity-march-2012-bs-c

  1. GREAT article, thank you so much! This was my first time seeing it and the advice in it is spot on! it can be so hard to find writing/other stuff balance and it can be easy to feel that all that “other stuff” – like blogging and speaking engagements, etc. – are stealing time from writing. But you’re right, if we redefine those as part of our work and we set limits then there is a way to not only manage it all but to find joy in it all. Thank you!

    • Terri, I’m so glad it was helpful. I’ve been doing so much better since I figured all of that out (although I do still have to get to the point at which I’m doing all my blog posts for the week on one day per week and that’s it. It gets really tough if I don’t do that).
