Bonus Randomness from Krista

What has been on my mind lately? A lot actually. But how does it relate to writing? Or websites? Or anything really?

Life can get in the way.

I know that is an odd way to see it. Our life should, after all, be our primary focus in life. Family, work, cooking, cleaning, hobbies, friends, other commitments.

Doesn’t it feel like there are so many things pulling us away from what we want to be doing?

This kind of leads into balance. Life is a balancing act. I feel like the elements of my life are a house of cards stacked on a shaky table. One wrong move brings the whole thing tumbling down. My house of cards seems to tumble down a lot.

Sorry to sound so pessimistic. There is a point to my rambling.

I’ve decided to make the things I want to do my life. Taking a hard look at my life showed me that I don’t have a problem with balance. I have a problem with priorities. I prioritize things incorrectly and often spend larger chunks of time on them then I need to.

At the same time I want to let you know, if you are struggling to squeeze in writing time (or something else) and are frustrated that it doesn’t ever seem to happen–cut yourself some slack. Life is hard. Balance is hard. But both are worth it.

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.
