What’s Up…

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to fill you on in on what is happening in my writing world this coming week. Author interviews, guest bloggers and the winding down of the February Writing Challenge.

On Monday the 11th we will be having a guest blog post and the guest herself will be sticking around to answer and questions or comments that you may have!! Her blog is VERY popular and I am very excited that I was able to convince her to do a post for us!!

Later in the week, the writing challenge will be ending and I am very bummed that we don’t have any entrants yet. So fun and easy, maybe next time.

I will also be posting another author interview toward the end of the week and I love that!! I am always excited to hear from other author’s and what makes them tick and stuff. ha ha

One last thing, you may notice that when I make comments and posts, it may say from, “FRaPS: Family, Relationships and Personal Situations” …no worries, that is still me, but it is for my business (as my writing is for fun) and my company just expanded onto the internet and I will be blogging for them. I love WordPress, but I can’t seem to figure out how to have more than one identity at a time on here. Oh well. Either way it is still me that you are talking to. 😉

Prioritizing

This is my big question of the day. We all have different lives, and different ideas as to what is at the top of our priority list, and what is at the bottom. That is a good thing since I think we would all be a little boring if we were all the same.

Some of us work full-time jobs outside the home, have young children and still find time to write. Tell me how you do that. Some of us don’t do anything else but write, and some of us are all over the place and are disorganized and just do whatever we think of in that minute. Which one are you?

Another question for you all. Do you find it easier to stay organized the more busy your life is? I mean, like you are so busy that you have no choice but to be organized right? Either that or you would miss a lot of stuff and be frazzled half of the time. 🙂

I am just curious to all of this because I think that I have been in every situation and am just curious as to how others prioritize. When I worked two jobs and had small children I was never able to get any writing done…at all, which is sad considering all that I had to say back then. ha ha ha

And now, I work from home, my children are older and I do get a lot of writing done, BUT, if my day has an interruption, like an appointment, a volunteer day or whatever, I am completely lost. My little routine is out of whack and I feel dazed and confused. Ok, well, maybe not that bad, but it does mess me up a bit.

I am still putting my writing last though. My family comes first, obviously, then my work and then my writing. The part that confuses me is that my work that I do from home is writing, but writing for others. My writing that I do for myself makes me a heck of a lot more money than my “job” does, so why do I put that higher on my list? I say because it is for someone else and I want to have a good name and all of that, but doesn’t my own writing do the same thing?

Anyway, that is my question for the day. Hearing all of your prioritizing ideas will be great information to have. Thank you!!
