As writer’s, we are forced to juggle many roles in order to do what we love. We struggle through the day job, do our home chores, study the craft, read, squeeze in some time to write, and eventually we need to sleep. It’s no wonder writer’s hit that wall the hardest.
From time to time we have to step back. We have to pause and reflect what we want, what we need, and what we will have to give up. In short, we have to find our ZEN.
Writing is a tough job, It’s even harder when you are stressed and pulled in a hundred directions. Sometimes we have to learn what we are capable of doing, and what is just going to have to be put on hold until you have the time to accomplish it. Sometimes we overfill our plates. We take on blogs, groups, and other commitments until we are so busy, we don't have time to do what we love. WRITE.
If we are not writing, we are not writers. It’s when we are writing that we are happiest, it’s when we have found our ZEN. So let go, relax, and write!
