Trying to map everything out

What are my goals? What are my priorities?

My time has been invested in working on something else the last few weeks, so I haven’t been writing or even critiquing (which kind of sucks). I have been doing a lot of research and planning, though, and the further I get into this, the more overwhelmed I feel. I’m also excited, anxious, nervous, and impatient. It’s a freaking smörgåsbord of somewhat uncomfortable emotions.

The overwhelming bit is how much this will change some of the things I’ve been doing. I may have to let go of some old processes and even names/titles that I really like. It’s the catch-22 of starting something new: I’m excited to embark on a new journey, but a very large part of me is all whiny about how he likes the way things are now. I don’t wanna change.

Hopefully tonight I’ll have time to sit down and really think about those two questions up above. I have some answers to the first one, but they’re still a little too ambiguous. The much more difficult question is numero dos. Where will my time be invested, and in what amounts? How will that affect my current resources? How should I change those resources so I can make my priorities a reality?

I wish I had someone to talk with about all this. But since I haven’t figured any of it out yet, what would I say?
