... Ask a Busy Person.
This has been my comfort every time I add something to my schedule I fear will take away from something else.
Also, my motto of the year is to live life slow and do one thing at a time. LOL. I am way too comfortable with holding contrasting and competing ideas. I’m a Libra.
Last night I was going through my task list and realized, finally, that I could go to Borders and write!!!! What a relief! And I think I can resume my normal writing schedule now, plus add the volunteer stuff I wanted to add to the roster this year. Considering I’m writing for real again (I’ve been doing my minimum 100 words every night in sheer desperation, but that’s it), I will hopefully be talking about writing here again.
I have a goal to sit down in my living room with my cup of golden milk (I use almond milk instead of real milk) and READ for an hour or more every night before bed. And relax.
Reading and watching stories on TV or at the movies probably ranks as one of the most important things to my development as a writer, so why do I have such trouble finding the time?
There’s all sorts of "clubs" out there, like the read 50 books a year challenge, and I think West of Mars has one for 100 books. Lauren Baratz-Logsted once set herself a goal of reading 365 books in a year (I’m so jealous!), although I never saw her mention whether she achieved it or not. (That would be pure heaven!)
So I want to add more volunteering and more reading to my schedule. All while slowing my life down. *sigh*
Where do you find time to read? (What a pitiful question!)
