Sometimes Life Gets In The Way:
These past several days have been extremely busy for me. I have several writing projects that went by the wayside. Another agent search...edit my 5-page synopsis...a character sketch...2 webinars waiting to be watched and numerous blogs with good advice waiting to be read. Add to that my own blog that's been sitting here waiting patiently for me to update. But life gets in the way sometimes. And you just have to roll with it.
But sometimes its an enjoyable intrusion.
I didn't once think about all the projects I had waiting at home. Sometimes there are more important things to do than edit your synopsis, or work on that 1st chapter of your new novel, or write your new blog post. Sometimes you need to set those things aside and just enjoy your family. The writing will be there when you get back to it, there's no boss (except yourself) that's going to dock you for missing work, the webinar will still be waiting to watch and so will all those blogs that need to be read.
So don't beat yourself up because you feel you've gotten behind in what you wanted to accomplish. Instead, relax, enjoy the moments you're in and breath deeply. You can't get these times back again.
