Happy Valentine's Day!!! *tosses sprinkles*
Now. It's blog chain time! This round features a question from Lisa. She wants to know the following:
The balancing act. How do you balance your writing time with everything else in your life--including kids, job, book promotion.
This is a pretty simple post for me. I don't have kids. I don't have a job (although I'm going on the prowl for one soon). Right now, I don't have to worry about book promotion because I don't have a book coming out in the near future (but I am querying one later this year).
What I do have is a thesis to write. And a family. A friends. Lots of friends who, for some reason, like seeing me and hanging out with me. So I've come up with a bit of a system: during weekdays, I work on my thesis (proposal, at this stage) in the mornings, then spend the afternoon working on my WIP. I make it a point to revise one page, though. This usually tempts me to work on at least a second page because I'm just too amped and feel like one page isn't enough. On weekends, no thesis whatsoever. I work on my WIP and hang out with my family, or I work on my WIP and catch up with friends, or I don't work on my WIP and watch a lot of TV/read awesome books.
It's been a blast so far. Let's hope I can keep this balancing act for a little while longer. *crosses fingers*
