Do you ever feel like this? Does the myriad of demands on your time sometimes overwhelm you, sucking the energy and inspiration needed to write? Do you feel like you could never lift a pen or type again? Do you feel dead tired?
I know I do. At least at the moment, anyway. I have so many things going on in my life right now, I constantly feel like I'm a mile behind. It's an exhausting feeling, worrying about what you haven't achieved. But what do we do about it? How do we lesson those demands on our time and re-charge our energy stores? What gives in order for us to have the energy to write?
For me, I think the answer is blogging. Write my book or blog. There isn't time for both. But I hate that conclusion. Why can't I have both? And in this time of social media and self-promotion, don't I need both? I am beginning to think I should have written my book first and then started my blog. Only then would I have the time to commit to the blogging world and other forms of social media.
What do you think? What would you be prepared to sacrifice in order to achieve your writing dreams? What have you already sacrificed?
