Frustratedly numbered

I have directly conflicting writing needs:
1. I need to get the revisions done on What We Did to Save the Kingdom, at least to the point where I can get other eyes on it. Really. Need.
2. I need to start another book. Really. Need.

I do not, however, have the bodily resources to do this concurrently. Or even particularly quickly consecutively.

My method of coping with having novels out on editors'/agents' desks has always been:
1. Work harder.
2. Send out stuff to which 1. has been applied.
3. A miracle happens.
4. Wiktory!
(Steps three and four are purely conjecture at this point.)

This is not particularly functional when 1. is not physically possible. Problem is, I can't really think of anything else that will work, either.

At least I'm pretty sure that, since I finished "Snapshots of Breath" this morning, I don't need to add, "3. I need to write more short stories," to the top list.

Bleh.
