I'm a horrible blogger

Yes, it is true. I am a horrible blogger. Not only do I neglect making regular posts, but I hardly ever visit my other blogging friends.

I've been conflicted over how I should be using my time. My sister told me that I REALLY need to work on my book and get it submitted soon. I have quite a bit written [somewhere between 120 and 180 pages, depending how it would be translated into book format], but still have so much to go. There's lots of plot points left to cover, and most books today are 300+ pages.

But yet, even with that in mind, I haven't been putting enough time into writing. Like I said, I've been conflicted, b/c adding into that mix is the fact that I'm a SAHM. My daughter needs attention and loving. I should probably be working more on alphabet and numbers with her. And, even though its been cold and rainy the past few days, the weather will be warming up, meaning more outside time.

Yes, conflicted.

I need to come up with a scedule and stick to it. I was originally thinking Mon, Wed, Fri work on book; Tue, Thur, and weekends [as permit] on blogging.

But as I sit here thinking, I'm realizing that that really isn't enough time dedicated to writing. It'll break the creative/writing process, taking days inbetween.

I won't give up my blog altogether. I may just have to say, once a week. Find an hour or two on weekends, perhaps, that I can dedicate to blogging. Maybe Sunday afternoons; Andrew has baseball practice and Erica takes naps.

I don't know what will happen, but I need to figure something out.

It's okay - really! Everyone goes thru times where their blog is neglected. It really shouldn't be top priority. Family and even your book should come first. I need to read more of your book, can you email me the second installment? It's intriguing!! :o)
