I’m so excited that my first short story is coming out in the MetaHuman Press Anthology Modern Gods. The title of my story is Ice Beauty. I hope when it is released you’ll check it out. However, it got me thinking that I now need to put more of a focus on my writing than I ever have before. LOL! Those of you following me know that I have very little time. Writers write, right? Well, yes, but many of us also take care of toddlers, have full time jobs, social lives, etc. As I type this, I have a sick toddler lying at my feet finally passing into a restful nap. I can still smell the vomit from earlier this morning. The French doors into the back yard are open so the dog can run in and out without my assistance, and my husband is running errands for me. All of this so that I can get a few more minutes, hopefully hours, of writing in. Then I’ll put away pen and paper (laptop) and get back to cleaning, feeding, hugging, listening, disciplining, and a multitude of other things.
If you are a writer and you feel overwhelmed by life, you are in good company. If you find a way to keep writing despite the obstacles, you are in great company. So, yeah – writers write. They write with limited time and sleep, and they write with lots of distractions. But they write.
