How do I find the time to write?
www.singlewithsixkids.blogspot.com/ if you don't believe me. So how do I write a book in between laundry and cooking and on and on and on? I write when I can. Okay, that sounds like a dumb answer, but it's true. I decided that I would choose to do something I love and something that brings me joy instead of say, watching TV. Cut out 3 hours of watching TV a day and you have yourself a book. And those TV hours were usually when my little ones were put to bed. I use to kiss my angels good night and then go plop right down in front of my favorite show and if I couldn't find a show then redbox was always there for me. But I wanted to write so I had to make a choice. It was a choice of acting or being acted upon. But I now have 9 published books and a contract signed on my newest manuscript. I'm not telling you it's easy to cut the TV habit, but I am telling you it's worth it. And I'm not perfect. I'm obsessed with The Voice on Monday nights. (Who isn't?) But that's the only show I watch. Not lying. To gain something of great worth, you usually have to make a sacrifice and if getting rid of The Jersey Shore or The Kardashians is the only thing holding you back? Come on, what are you waiting for?
