The past two months have been something of a whirlwind for me. I attended my first national RWA conference where I met the writers of my dreams and the woman who will change my life forever – my new editor! ( More to come on that in a later blog). I am a finalist in 3 major contests and am still waiting for the results of 2. I entered Harlequin’s SoYouThinkYouCanWrite 2014 contest and am getting some good feedback on my entry. I finished another new book and outlined three more. I finished my writing dream board.
You could say I have been on a writing high.
Through it all I have worked at my paying job, taken care of my family – and ALL that entails, and been kept busy with outside commitments and philanthropy work. Oh, and I also spent time with my BFF’s.
Who says you can’t have it all?
Well, maybe not all…but a good chunk. Time management is a key factor is how I run my life – or how it runs me, to be more precise. If I didn’t make lists, stick to schedules, devote time to certain projects and endeavors, I would never get anything done. The fact that I am a chronic insomniac doesn’t hurt either. It’s 4:24 a.m. as I write this and I have been up for an hour so far. Cleaned the kitchen, made muffins for hubby’s breakfast and started a load of laundry. Now I can write. The house is uber-quiet, I am in my relaxing writing loft and the ideas are flowing. Yes, I will probably crash by 2 p.m., but a quick nap will spur me on towards 4 pm Mass, dinner, and then some quiet time with hubby.
Life, to steal another writer’s words, is good.
