I am in shock that it is March already. I started March with great intentions when it came to my writing. I made some progress but for the most part I felt guilty because the rest of life got the greater share of my time. Even the time I spent writing felt cluttered by to many unrelated thoughts. The more I struggle the more I feel like a fraud. How can I be a writer if I struggle with something so basic as finding time? I can do it by not giving up. By realizing that I can't do everything and figuring out what I'm willing to sacrifice to make time for what matters most to me. Most of all I can refuse to feel guilty for what I can not accomplish. Maybe someday I can balance volunteering in other areas with writing and homeschooling but right now I can't and I'm going to have to be ok with that.
Now on to What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading
I've been book hopping this week. I read a bit from this and a bit from that. I'm still reading Allegiant by Veroncia Roth. I finished Say Goodbye to Survival Mode which was amazing and helped me realize that I'm trying to juggle to many things and its ok that I can't. I'm currently reading Third Daughter by Susan Kay Quinn. I'm loving it! I knew I would... Steampunk Bollywood? What's not to like?
What I'm Writing
I did a bit of drafting on my WIP and played around with some flash fiction.
What Inspires me Right Now
I've been getting tons of inspiration from Saying Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine. Now that I finished the book I'm going to work through the sections, applying her advice where I can.
What Else I've Been Up To
Homeschooling, life, reading, writing and I finally found the perfect button for the Kindle case I made!
