Okay, yeah, it's NaNo and I should be concentrating on writing. Except it's also cold enough to go in the woods finally and there's a lot of work to be done there.
So, how does one find the balance?
Lord knows, I haven't found it. I can either protect the writing and do the writing, or I can get household stuff done. Not both. Because by the time I'm done working in the woods or cleaning the house or whatever, I'm either too tired or too sore to sit at the computer, typing away.
Last week, I lost two days of writing because I raked part of the yard. (Big yard. Has to be done in sections.) Last night, I lost the writing because I was working in the woods.
On the other hand, I wrote every day for the first 13 days of the month and everything non-writing got left behind. And it's not like I write all day. I can manage about two hours before my hands start to turn into claws. But if I use my hands for other stuff, I can't even manage the two hours.
Anyway, as I said yesterday on Outside the Box, I'm not kicking myself for missed words. And I'm not kicking myself for missed home projects. I'll get to one or the other as time and body allows.
I guess I need to be more disciplined. But self-discipline has never been my strong suit. If it was, I'd be a 135-pound goddess with a sparkling house full of healthy foods. ROFL.
How's the balance in your life?
