Lately I've been asking myself when will I have time to write? I've made my priority my next book, Tale, but it seems there is always something that keeps me away from time to do so.
It's not just the marketing stuff that I have to do, it's also the learning curve - which literally sucks the time right out of my day. But there are other things too. Such as errands, cleaning, cooking, taking care of my mom, now helping her neighbor, who is a good friend of our family, with her Alzheimer issues, painting the house and a whole host of other things that are filling up my plate.
And it's not so much that I mind doing these things, it's the fact that my writing is getting pushed further down the list. I've even asked for help from one of my family members, but she's too busy for me. So I'm back to square one.
Last post I talked about breaking out my calendar and organizing - not an easy task since I'm filling it up so fast that there's no time left for anything, let alone writing. I even emailed my marketing coach about help and he suggested I go watch one of his videos.
I don't have time to sit and watch a video.
So I've decided that I'm shelving a lot of this marketing stuff, for now, and just simply writing. The fact that I'm getting my blog done is a miracle in of itself, but I've always written a blog and I figured I can at least get that done.
It's not for a lack of trying, there's just not enough time when you're being pulled in a lot of different directions. So, again, my priority is writing, and that's what I'm going to do. Everything else is taking a back seat.
(I know, I'm whining, but I think I'm allowed once in a while.)
I'm sure there are plenty of you that are going through the same thing. What helps you to get it all done? Are you on the computer 24/7? I can't do that with my neck and eye issues. About an hour at a time and then I have to do something else or be in pain all day.
If you get a moment let me know how you manage to get it all done - that is - if you do.
Have a great weekend all!
