My last update was titled “Juggler is an Apt Description.” So of course now I have little to report. That doesn’t mean I dropped all the balls, but they seem to be hovering in an anti-gravity zone where not much occurs.
Instead of 1,000 words a day, I’ve written about 1,500 words all week. But I won’t be down about it.
I’ve realized I need to rebalance where I’m spending my extra minutes. When I start to be too snippy with my kids, too distracted to keep up with the housework, and all around out of sync with my values, I know I MUST rebalance. That’s a point I reached this week.
Is 1,000 words a day just too high a goal for me? Because that’s when things started to get out of whack — when I decided I needed to finish drafting the next novel, while working on publishing one novella and editing another….Too many projects, and too high of goals for each one makes J.R. an unhappy writer. And I mean to be a happy writer, happy wife, happy mom, happy ME!
Best of luck reaching your goals in the coming week. And for goodness sake, let’s have some FUN!
