I absolutely love to write, but too much writing isn’t good for my shoulders or my mind. I don’t write well when I’m tired. My eyes burn from too much looking at the computer screen. I miss out on time with my family.
This is not a good place to be. I realize that.
So, I’ve had to schedule my writing time and enlist my family’s help in holding me to my “office hours.”
It’s been hard to let go of a passion and replace it with the most important things in my life: family, faith, and friends.
I’ve had to devote time and effort to prove—and enjoy—that truth. I have to believe my writing won’t suffer if I don’t give it one hundred percent of my time.
But, when I am writing, I give one hundred percent of my ability and skills.
And that I can do.
