Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
The writing world will swallow you up if you allow it to. I find myself trying to find a balance between writing and my daily existence and failing miserably! Writing and then marketing that creation time is consuming and for me the introvert a welcome distraction from everyday life that wears me out and uses me up. I say that I failed because I did not keep that balance of wife, mom, teacher, author that I thought I was managing quite well. At this point, writing has been relegated to stolen moments and my lunch break. I do not feel that it is wise or advisable to give up on my writing career as it its beginning. I will just have to be more conscientious of other people’s needs before I allow myself to be swept into a world of introverted and imaginary bliss.
That being said, I have made a new discovery. Writing in quick and intense bursts is not necessarily a bad thing. I have found that my word count is growing on my sequel for The Corporeal Pull quite nicely. My editing and reworking time is really where I am making the most cuts. In the long run, that is alright. I can use summer break to rework my chapters, so long as I have managed to produce the chapters as I go.
Speaking of which, I have a few moments now and a chapter that is dying to be written!
