Kari's Kave is Swallowing Her Up!!!

Holy cow, I've never been so busy in my life!

Anita's post yesterday was great, and one I am in desperate need of. I need to start following that process on a daily basis, instead of just when I'm under deadline and writing like a mad woman! I always do this to myself, and now, once again, my life is nuts.

I seriously need to go away with just my laptop for a week!

There are not enough hours in the day. Good thing I love what I do. But I really do have to learn to say no to my hubby, my kids, volunteering, etc. I am so bad at that. One simple little word ... no! Why is that so hard? Why do I feel so guilty when I do say no, which isn't often? Why do I end up changing my mind and saying yes anyway?

That's another goal I'm working toward. Staying on track and just saying no!

So, in the meantime, don't worry, I'm not dead or missing or lost! I will be burined alive in my Kave, ignoring everything else, staying on track (hopefully), and just saying no :-)

Come on, writing gods ... swallow me up!

What is hard for you? What are your goals? What are you struggling with at the moment?

Inquiring miinds want to know.

I hear you, Kari. I'm struggling with balancing writing, housework, and family. Basically, it's a lack of time management skills. But I think I'm improving somewhat, or at least I'm back to feeling motivated, and that's huge for me. I wrote 14 pages over the last two days. That's good news too.

Awesome Anita! Every bit counts.

Kari: I totally understand. Don't get me started with the list. I don't want to depress myself. The writing is so important to al of us-- how do we balance?

But, 14 pages?? That's fantastic.

We all need to learn how to say no, and the key is to not feel guilty when we do. Deadlines have a way of sneaking up on you. Hang in there, Kari--and keep writing.
