What Draws on Our Time: A Semi-Random Thought

I’ve been very busy lately. There are so many things in the wings for me to work I often find myself up late and night, tired, and feeling overwhelmed.

In the midst of all this work to launch this blog, start my own business, and survive my life in general–I haven’t had time to write. The final book in my series is languishing away while I attend to all the other things drawing on my time. Slowly I’m learning to limit the demands on my time so that I can focus on what is most important to me.

Not everyone can have writing be their full-time profession. I certainly wanted it to be. But we don’t live in an ideal manner. So we must learn to balance. I’m still a novice at finding balance in my writing and in life in general. Right now my biggest accomplishment is to recognize when something is eating up more of my time than it is worth. And I’m working toward weeding out those things with the least value.

How do you limit the things drawing on your time so that you can find time to write? How do you strike a balance between the different areas of your life?

Writer, mother, coder, nerd. I have more than ten years of experience in software and web development. And I have a series of middle-grade fantasy books that I self-published. I am passionate about self-publishing and believe that anyone can do it. Elegantly Self Published is my blog dedicated to sharing my knowledge so that you can do just that.
