Many Thanks to my friend, Patricia Garcia, who invited me to join the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, started by Alex Cavanaugh. This month’s question is “How do you find time to write during your busy day?” Good question!
Have you ever crashed into a “brick wall” that decimated your car or bike or even you? Or have you ever had a horrific surgery where you struggled to recover? Did it take you a while to build your nerve and strength back to get moving again? What did it take for you to stop being afraid, or to take action to recover?
I have hit that “proverbial brick wall!” It is the blank wall sitting in front of my computer. My mind is void of thoughts, dreams, or craziness. How do I revive my interest in writing? How do I push to rework my stories? This year has been exhausting for me as I have been caregiving for my husband since Christmas, and we had to move. I haven’t recovered yet!
Now, I keep busy driving my husband to doctors’ appointments as he can’t drive. Additionally, now I have doctors’ appointments for me. I’m driving from one end of the county to the other end. I’m busy singing “On the Road Again.” When I arrive home I’m mentally and physically exhausted. Plus, old age is attacking me and I’m in serious pain, as my hips are attempting to divorce me and run away on their own.
I do have one constructive job. I have been asked to be on the “Street Team” for one of my author friends. I’m enjoying reading her latest book that will be published in December, so I’ll look forward to writing a positive review. So my writing is responding to the IWSG question this month and writing a book review.
Somehow I need to set some goals for me… AND follow though!
