Day 25 of the Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May-Book Giveaway.
Today’s question: How about you? Are you committed to your creative projects no matter what? Can you tap your great determination and use it to tackle the writing projects that matter most to you? Tell us what great determination means to you.
My response: I am committed to my writing projects, and part of that commitment is learning to balance my writing projects with the other obligations in my life. I have undertaken to write every day since the beginning of this year, and to do so, I have had to make some concessions. I have had to juggle volunteer commitments, my job, my family responsibilities, my fitness goals, and my writing desires. That has meant prioritizing what is most important to me, what I can cut back on, and what is absolutely non-negotiable. I have learned to narrow my focus, pick those calls for submissions I feel are the best use of my time and talents, and then stick to my deadlines, whether self-imposed or given to me by the publication.
It’s not too late to join in! The complete rules for this giveaway can be found here.
