Barefoot & Naked

I've been considering so many things lately that I've been fighting my head. I've been torn, mixed up, distant. Between the restaurant I own with my husband, my writing career, and where I want to go from this point, I'm not surprised I've been having the craziest dreams/nightmares.
I promise I'm not going to share the crazy dreams with you, because upon waking, they don't really make all that much sense. I'm ready to make the decisions I need to make, and get focused.
It's the lack of focus that keeps me from getting my books written faster. I can't seem to stick with one idea long enough to finish a novella, much less a full-length novel.
Thanks to some great phone apps, I'm getting my shit in order, and putting my life in order.
One of the decisions I made was to cut one of my pen names, and kick that chick to the curb. Trying to keep up more than one persona is exhausting, and time consuming. I haven't given the pen name a formal funeral yet, because who knows, I may want to write in some obscure genre, and I'll need her again.
I'm working to get an assistant trained, but he's rather resistant. Yeah, he looks nice in that photo in the corner, but he's a crazy stubborn nice guy.
Stay tuned, as I'm working on becoming a regular blogger, now that I'm only one person again.
As a writer, I'm really 27-30 people at once, with the characters in my head. How about you? If you're a writer, do you enjoy the company of the crazies in your head? Even as a non-writer, there are crazies in our head. Ha! We are never alone. Right?
