It’s time to ask my writer friends for some advice: I need to find a way to strike a balance between writing and life.
I’ve written about this on my other blog, but not here. It seems that when I’m focusing on my writing, everything else falls by the wayside — especially diet and exercise.
I wake up and want to get right down to business. I’d rather write than cook. Forget moving — I’d rather plant my butt in a chair all day, reading, writing, researching (and, yes) playing online.
So my question to you all: How do you balance your writing with everything else you want to/have to do?
In an effort to get over the disappointment of not finaling in the Golden Heart, I’ve been a busy, busy writer. 😀
No giving up for me, no sir.
I spent the weekend working on a synopsis for “Blind Date Bride” and reworking the ending on my losing GH entry. (I’m getting rid of their silly argument for a meatier one. There’s probably still not enough conflict, but I think it’s getting closer.)
I also discovered I may be eligible for PRO status with RWA. I’m going to look into that.
Nothing like a little disappointment — or a lot — to make you realize you need to work harder.
Today, I spent some time before work trying to come up with a synopsis for next year’s GH entry, which I want to enter in a contest with an April 10 deadline.
How long am I allowed to wallow in disappointment before it morphs into full-blown depression? Right now, I can’t seem to concentrate on anything more taxing than a box of Chicken McNuggets chased with a carton of Ben & Jerry’s.
I’ll give myself the rest of the night to sob into some comfort food, but tomorrow, it’s back to eating right and, more importantly, writing. I have a synopsis to come up with for “Blind Date Bride.”
