Is this a beautiful picture of tranquility or what? A steaming cup of coffee and a blank crisp page ready to delve into…absolutely perfect!
If this were my reality I wouldn’t know what to do with myself!
Silence? What’s that? My home is usually filled with looting pirates, zooming airplanes sinking an aircraft carrier, T-Rex stalking its prey or some Disney Jr. show in the background. Not to mention the dishes and laundry calling my name; a nagging reminder that I have responsibilities outside of my writing bubble.
So how do I get any writing done?
Being a mother and a wife, as well as pursuing my dream of being an author, isn’t easy. Some days it feels downright impossible. But I have a supportive husband who withholds his frown if the sink is still full when he gets home, or adjusts his schedule so I can make my library writing time.
Writing is far from a solitary effort. Each member of my family gives so that I may write. I am indebted to their sacrifices so that I might have my shot at making a career out of what I love most. Writing isn’t just something I enjoy…it’s a passion!
So how do you manage to juggle the necessities of life with your writing goals?
