A trying time

I am finding everything a little difficult at the moment. Maybe it is the deadlines or the stress of family or the simple fact that for the last three weeks my life has been booked solid. I mean I have loved doing everything but now I just want to be able to get a whole day sitting at the keyboard and writing. Instead I’m faced with a future of half days as other responsibilities crowd into my life.

The first thing that was a problem to keep up with was ‘The Gone’. Don’t worry I am still working on it and I have a tentative launch date of Christmas, but the blog posts have dropped off. I don’t have writer’s block or any problems, but I have a serious lack of time. I will get a blog post up today though.

Then there is the anthology. It is all planned out and going well, but I need to be able to sit down and get a good stretch of time to write a few more stories. 

I think, if anything, I feel frustrated that I have so much on the go and not enough time to do it. I could extend my hours but that is counterproductive. If I get tired then my dyslexia plays up and my eyes double, and… well, lets just say it is a mess. 

So the only thing to do is suck it up, and, as my editor would say, put my big girl pants on. 🙂 Everything will get back to normal soon. I just have to hang in there until it does,

  1. I understand the frustrations of not enough time. Even as a non-working it home wife and mom, it seems time is not a commodity I have a lot of (oyyy where does the time go??). Constant balancing act between family needs/obligation, looking for work/working on business ideas, and the many (volunteer style) projects I do….

    I wish you all the best Kate. Best luck with “The Gone”. I’m behind on my reading, but have been enjoying so far.

    1. Thanks Tena. Glad you are enjoying ‘The Gone’.
      Recently I did a business course and they talked about the ideal and the reality. I think the reality just hit me hard. I will find those extra hours though. 🙂
