It’s done and such a good feeling. I e-mailed my short story to Groundwaters this afternoon. Another deadline met after hours of revising and proofreading. Hopefully I’ll be able to read it in print in July.
I have to admit it is difficult trying to balance blogging with my other writing and with the other aspects of my life. As I sit here composing this blog the house is screaming, “I’m dirty. Clean me.” But tomorrow is errand day and the house will stay dirty a little longer.
This whole endeavor is a bit like having a new baby in the house. Baby gets all the attention; hubby gets neglected; house gets neglected; animals, while not neglected get much less attention than they would like. And then there’s sleep. I’m neglecting that, too. Like all things in life, I expect the balance will sort itself out if I don’t give up too soon.
Finding balance is also a bit like writing. The words will come if an author just perseveres and doesn’t give up.
Do you have trouble balancing your writing with other aspects of your life? How do you handle it?
