My calendar tells me it’s my turn to blog again. And though I missed one (or two?) blogs I decided I better not let this one fall through, even if I get it to you all a day or two later than usual. Yes, I have a pretty good excuse (surgery and a newborn is no joke!) but I am slowly coming out of a time warp and taking interest in things around me, including writing again.
Well, to be more precise, editing. I am slowly working through the kinks in The Price of Pandemonium and getting it ready to send to Ashley for her edits. And soon, I will be coming back to the podcast, too. It’s exciting when I find these small moments in between caring for my daughter Julia. Strangely, in a way I feel more productive than usual. I think having a newborn makes you really value those tiny moments you can carve out for yourself, so I’m doing a lot less time-wasting these days. I still look at the clock and wonder where half the day went, but I don’t judge myself for it. I’m a busy mum, but I’m still a dedicated writer. Here’s hoping that I manage to find an acceptable balance between both these roles!
If you are a parent, how do you manage to find time to write, especially in the early days?
Let me know in the comments!
