I discovered the horrible truth behind balancing a life and being a writer—the amount of time spent writing is maybe 30 minutes/week. It’s awful!
I work a 9 to 5 job, have an amazing boyfriend of over 2 years (though I’ve known him longer), a family nearby, friends who want to hang out…the list goes on.
I’m not saying that this is an excuse or anything. I’m talking about this because I want to reflect on the life choices that push me into squeezing time write within the last few minutes of the day.
The clock reads 11:35 pm EST.
Ah! it’s 11:56 pm! What? Stupid phone calls…
So, of course, like many other interruptions, I lose track of what I planned to type in these pages. Now I’m left staring at the computer screen, wondering why I started. I have this voice in the back of my head that tells me that, since I started, I need to finish.
This New Year’s Resolution is a little more difficult than thought. Hmm…time for plan B.
For any readers who stumble upon this blog…any tips on organizing time more efficiently to write/blog?
