I’ve only been doing the regular weekly blog posts. I’ve had ideas pop into my head now and then for extra posts, but none of them seem to have made it into the blog.
I promised myself that I would stop thinking about writing as being that thing I indulge in when everything else is done. But although that is still true, I’ve realized this week that it’s not only my own priorities working against me. There are other factors at work.
But that can’t be an excuse for not getting it done. Yes, family members get sick. We have to adjust our plans to take care of them. I have a child with special needs, and every time I think we have her routine running smoothly, somehow a wrench flies into the works. Even though I’ve been saying “no” to most distractions (Most notably, an online class through a reputable University, reading and discussing various classics of SciFi and Fantasy) I’ve said “yes” to others (helping out with my church’s Vacation Bible Camp.)
I’m not sure how I’m going to tweak things this week. Yes, I need to write more. Yes, I need to make it a priority. But sometimes it feels like I’m just nailing jello to a tree.
Oh… look… it is possible after all!
