A to Z challenge. I've been happy with making new friends and picking up new followers. But I've disappointed myself with my time management. I really let my writing take a back seat. That brings me to my personal concern I'll share for this month's Insecure Writers' Support Group.
Like most writers, I have a day job to pay the bills. And I have one child still in high school and one in college. My daughter in high school keeps up pretty busy with her athletics and the various academic activities we've had the pleasure to share with her. And we have a big house and with a big lots that needs a lot of spring clean up. Those are my excuses for not getting writing done over the past month.
The truth is, my life is less busy now than it was when my three boys were also playing sports. Yet, I did lots of writing during those years. I don't have less time now, I'm not using it as wisely. They say the first step to recovery is knowing you have a problem. So where has my time gone?
Probably blogging has swallowed a good portion of that time so I'm going to be stricter with myself about that. I don't facebook much but I do like to play some games on the computer. My goal is to stop that. For May, my writing time is for writing.
What is your biggest thief of your writing time? What do you do about it?
