Well, I haven't posted since my birthday. Oh! What a birthday it was! Dinner at the SUPER-romantic, historical Sky Room and a movie with my wonderful hubby...who could ask for anything more? :D
It is funny how crazy busy you become, whenever you don't want to be and have been actively trying to UN-drama your life. Has anyone else experienced this? Between archery, Girl Scouts, school activities, homework, fundraising, community service and all the other stuff - I'm wiped out.
In addition, I've been lagging on my writing. When the kids finally go to sleep (usually the youngest is down by 11pm, at the latest); I find I'm exhausted and often just sit and stare until I can no longer keep my eyes open - then trudge off to bed. Kinda sad, right?
Well, I've made a commitment to get my first novel done in the next year - deadline: July 31, 2012. I figure it's an apropos date since it's LIZ's birthday and she really got me going with the blogging!
So let the countdown begin! Now I can no longer make excuses and have to write even when I'm tired. Deadlines (even the ones I put on myself) keep me motivated, how about you? What keeps you writing even when you are tired/sick/stressed/overwhelmed? Do any of you struggle with this?
Happy writing and thanks for reading!
