It's the A to Zed Challenge! I'll be posting the first half of the month from Ottawa where I'm staying with my youngest and his partner and their newest - a little guy who was born the end of March. Yay!
Theme? Writing and Life is what comes to me... how to balance the writing life with the other tugs you may have...
The ABCDEaria of the Writing Life -
J is for Juggle
Juggle? Really? You think? I can hear every writer laughing their head off at this one. Yep, if you are going to write and have a fairly normal life (normal in that you have friends, family, at least a dog or you know - garbage to put out on Wednesdays) then you are going to have to juggle.
Have you ever juggled? I tried for awhile (I am a part-time clown) and I got as far as juggling two oranges with one hand. The thing I think I know about juggling, and I'm sure Lee can help me out here, is that you have to believe each object is truly the most important one. If you think that only the crystal ball is important maybe cuz it cost more and really the orange is replaceable, well then you are going to drop them all. If I start thinking that my family isn't as
important as my writing, then I'm going to drop my family and my writing. So once you decide on what it is that is important and pay attention to all of them then you should be able to do it. I completely made this up but I believe it is true. We'll see won't we.
