Busy is Good!


I just got back from the 2014 Romance Writers of America conference in San Antonio. Whew! What a blast! I’m feeling energized, encouraged, and motivated. RWA conferences are definitely worth the money.

Step one: Beef up social media presence. Check.

Step two: Prepare revision to send to editor. Check.

My writing tasks are surrounded by the daily chores of farm life, requests for telepathic animal communication sessions, and a stress-relieving hour (or three) doing yoga, walking dogs, making pottery, or sculpting something. There’s also the time I carve from this monumental to-do list to spend time with family or friends.

I’m busy. I’m more-than-busy. But I don’t envy writers who have little else to do but write. I love living the life I’m creating for myself every minute of every day.
