As a busy mother, wife, creative person, and woman of this era, it might surprise people that I don’t take very many breaks. OK probably not a surprise. But I’m changing that. I have a story that I am writing and I really want to make more time for that. It’s evolving and I can’t stop thinking about two if the characters. I can’t say that I am going to commit a certain time and a certain amount of time every day. But I can say that I am going to put more effort into this part of my creative life.

There is always going to be dusting or housework or a kid to bring somewhere or food to shop for. There is always something that will stop us from tuning into the things that we want to do for ourselves. If you’re like me you give a lot. But you don’t take a lot. Again I’m going to change that. Writing this story is something for me. I don’t have a reader in mind. I don’t have an ulterior motive like becoming a famous writer or selling a ton of books. I just really feel the need to tell the story. In order to do that I need to take the time. For me and for the words.

What is something that you would love to do more of but don’t make the time for? How about doing that now? leave a comment and let me know what it is.
