I Want It All! What Do You Mean I Can't Have It?!
Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This Week's Topic is super interactive:
What do you want to know about writing and getting published?
I don't know if my question is specifically about your writing, fellow bloggers, but it pertains to my writing world. Here goes...
Many writers hold down full-time jobs, many have children, husbands, a gazillion things going on... in other words, we all have busy, busy lives. How do YOU juggle? How do you stay true to your family, work, do everything else you need to do, yet still find time to write?
This is something I've been struggling with lately (have you seen my last couple of posts?!). Usually I'm fantabs at keeping a to-do list, keeping it reasonable, and checking most of it off by day's end. Lately, there's been a lot going on. I want to be a good parent. I want to be a good teacher. I want to be there for my family, my friends, my writing peeps, my dance friends... and usually the first thing to migrate to the back burner - the writing. I know it's a storm we all weather. I also know it will pass. But when writing is the sanity to my daily craze, well, I guess you can imagine I've been experiencing the perpetual funk lately.
So how do you do it, fellow writers? How do you juggle life and still manage to have it all?
PS - the other day I posted my first crusader challenge (hehe). The lie - I do have OCD, but I wear black EVERY day - it's not OCD dictated. Thanks for participating!
