So… seems I just can’t stay away from blogging. Yep. Officially, this blog is still on hiatus, but I’m sitting here on a Saturday night, writing this blog post.
Not sure. Really, that’s what I am right now. Unsure. I’ve set everything aside temporarily in order to get my new business off the ground, and I feel like that’s going well. And yet…
I’m coming to that point where everything feels out of whack. I know why. I’m a writer. Writers write. When they’re not writing, they’re thinking of what they’re going to write. Except… my business hasn’t afforded me that luxury since the middle of July.
And it’s starting to make me feel crummy.
Yet, to me it’s not currently just a matter of opening a notebook/document and writing and/or editing. No, because truthfully, I’m addicted to writing. Right now, I’m starting to go into withdrawals.
That’s why I’m writing this. Because I know if I start working on some of my fiction, it’s going to consume my thoughts and right now, my thoughts and creativity have to go into making my business work. Because this business will fund all my publishing plans if it works. So a short term sacrifice of writing time is worth it.
But at the same time, my muse seems to be singing a siren’s song, calling me to work on something, anything that involves crafting a story.
At the same time, putting my thoughts and feelings into words is so gratifying that I can’t help wanting to do more and more of it. Which is making me realize that I have to find a way to get some writing or editing time into my schedule.
But how to do it without completely burning myself out?
