Overwhelmed: compartmentalizing, and not being successful at it

Can't seem to concentrate today, which is a common thing for Mondays.  This weekend was absurd, and my mind was too focused on terrifying things to even contemplate my work week, so this morning, I'm having a hard time getting on track.

So here I am.

I've decided I have too many projects ongoing at once.  I'm not sure what to do about that, except work on them to completion and de-clutter my mind.  Except the one I need to be working on today isn't coming, so I'm taking a break from it right now.  *waves*

Currently, I have three rough drafts in the works.  I'm working with model/photographer trio on a new series (two of my current rough draft).  And I have half a dozen other stories floating around in my head.  I have no idea how many outlines I've got.

And then there's the incidental stuff, things I like to call administrative promo junk.  I need to move my books over to Draft 2 Digital, organize blog tour stuff, swap author interview/guest posts with as many authors as possible, and facebook like a madwoman, networking and creating contacts.  I know I don't have to use facebook for that, but it's what I'm most familiar with.

I was contacted by someone last night, asking me about the rights to one of my books.  That was exciting, but has instigated a bunch of research that I wasn't planning on doing today.

There are a ton more things on my to-do list, all of which are important.  But none of which are really taking the majority of my attention today.  Today, I'm overwhelmed and trying to recover from the emotional roller coaster of my weekend.

It's hard to compartmentalize today.  Maybe tomorrow will be better.
