Cathy: Love and writing

I really do often feel stuck between what I “should” be doing instead of writing, and my writing. If I don’t put it first right now, I will only be a resentful pig of a mother and wife. And that’s the truth. Plain and simple.

So yesterday, when I needed a moment in the midst of writing, I doodled this instead.

It’s really almost done. This is the final push. So if my family sees less of me, if you see less of me around the blogosphere, etc., this is why. I am hard at work. I will be back in my family’s life more when I can focus on them better because I will not be dissecting and rearranging a manuscript in my head during our interactions.

And that’s it.

  3. Thanks all for the encouragement.

    of course this week presented itself a bit more toward the no time to write after all. but the last couple of weeks have gone well in that dept! weekend is booked, but next week, i’m back in the library for 3 hour or more stretches every chance i can get.

    i found the key for me is to get out of the house, where i can always find something else or someone else that needs attending to.

  4. Cathy, you are giving us all permission to LEAN IN and make that final push. Because once it is done…RELIEF…JOY…REGROUP. Go with it friend!
