This “writing life” takes a bit of getting used to. As a stay at home Mom to two sons (one has graduated from homeschool, the other will graduate from his college certificate program in December), I don’t really get to live by a totally set schedule. Life gets bumpy sometimes and I am needed to perform various tasks that can change quite quickly sometimes.
Often, writing will seem to take a back seat. Not that I am ignoring my blog or articles deliberately, as I always seem to have lots of ideas formenting around in my brain. But, when I sit down to actually write, I often need to get several blog posts written, articles, and/or work on my new project of creating some e-books on DIY topics for Molly Green Magazine. Some of these things have set deadlines, others are a bit more open ended, but all need to happen.
Not to mention that my oldest son is epileptic and can’t drive. Younger son doesn’t have his drivers license yet, either, so I am a part time chauffeur. My father also had a seizure and he is also needing rides to various places as well. His time of needing rides from my Mother and me will end in a week or so, but we often support each other in various ways, which can be time consuming.
But, I need some creative time in my life to feel balanced. I need to write. I need to sew and craft. It’s truly a NEED for me.
Now off to write….
How do you indulge your creative spirit?
Till next time,
