A Writer's Balancing Act

When I decided to become a writer, I thought things would stay organized, blog posts would be added on a regular schedule. You know, perfection. Well, that’s not quite what happened. While I do my best to keep the wine reviews coming, falling short was bound to happen since I decided I wanted to release not one but two books this year.

My goal is to be a full-time writer in the near future but there is so much work to do. My day consists of working a full-time job, being a mom, a wife and a writer after everyone is taken care of. How I’ve juggled all these roles for the last 6 months is beyond my comprehension. No one ever said pursuing what I love would be easy. It’s been some long hours and some nights I have been too damn tired to write. My book releases are starting to haunt me at night because while my original plan was to have a marketing plan to promote my new book “The Princess of Darkness Book 2” in writing. Well that hasn’t been done and you know what? I don’t care. The “publish” button is getting pressed this week as promised. The beauty of self-publishing is sometimes, you may have to fly by the seat of your pants while making last minute decisions. I am okay with that.

Despite the sleepless nights, frustration during editing and not being completely in tune with my blog the way I want to, I wouldn’t exchange any of this for the world. I have learned so much about juggling the responsibilities of blogging and writing a book I could write a very long blog post on it but I won’t bore you all with information overload. Would I suggest beginner writers to do things the way I am doing it? Eh, probably not. I am a rebel by nature and even though mistakes have been made, I am stubborn, hard headed and strong willed. Making mistakes don’t scare me because it’s all part of the journey.

My next post will be about how I realized I was missing the one of the fundamentals rules of blogging. Ah yes, as always, so much to write about, so little time.

Thanks for sticking with me, my lovely readers and wine lovers. I appreciate you.
