The Joys Of Juggling
Happy 4th of July!
When you blog a lot, it can be hard to find inspiration, but sometimes other people find it for you. Here’s what someone suggested I blog about today.
Today I was trying to finish up a batch of eight articles to partly meet a tight deadline that’s looming. While I was doing that, the phone rang and I had a ten minute conversation with a friend. (OK, I could have told her I was busy, but talking to friends is part of having a balanced life, so I chatted for a short while.)
I went back to my computer, finished the articles and started to upload them into the CMS for checking. While I was doing that my daughter came to ask me to help her find her trousers, which she had lent to her full sized doll a couple of weeks ago. We haven’t seen them since. I had to stop for a moment, help her with her problem and then go back to work.
Many of us are juggling the joys and responsibilities of motherhood and friendship with the joys and responsibilities of freelance writing. It’s not always easy. Often, while you are writing you think you should be with your child, and while you are with your child, you are thinking about that looming deadline. But although it can get a bit manic sometimes, I wouldn’t have it any other way. How about you?
