Juggling a hectic home life with the beginnings of a writing career has proven more challenging than I had initially anticipated. My challenge currently is to find the time to write. My boys are 2 and 4 years old. Each with needs that only mommy can fulfill.
My two year old will walk over to where I am sitting with my laptop and close it on my fingers as I am trying to type. This is a daily occurrence for me.
It is 11:30pm and I write this blog in my son’s dimly lit room impatiently waiting for him to give in to sleep. If I am lucky I will write for a half hour and become victor over this cute but stubborn blond haired boy who is desperately fighting sleep and he will it is only a matter of time.
I acquired a notebook which I carry around with me should my muse strike. I often find myself writing in the strangest of places… the bathroom while I am washing, the kitchen and even the laundry room. I savour the moments when I can as is Dawn’s favourite saying “JUST WRITE SOMETHING.”
In parting, I would like to leave you with this question. How do you find balance between your writing and your responsibilities?
Until the next time happy writing adventures.
