So much to do, so little time!

I get this question often. I believe I wrote a little bit about it in my failed Tumblr (I still don't understand how that works!). I have a full-time job I enjoy and I am committed to. I have three little ones to clothe, feed, bathe, educate, and play with. I have a husband I spend quality time with. I also have other hobbies I enjoy -- painting, drawing, and singing. Then there's all the peripheral activities to writing -- writing blog posts, writing my fanfics to attract an audience into my author page, creating content for social media...

How do I find the time?

First and foremost, I get support from my Hubby. All this is not possible without him. We share the load and he gifts me with free time.

I also do things I want to do when I want to do them. That way, it doesn't feel like a chore. I enjoy writing and engaging. When it feels too much, then I ease back and do something else. This way, regardless of the result, I will always enjoy the process.

And technology. I don't think I could have done as much fifteen years ago. The advent of the smartphone may have been a curse in some ways, but it has been a boon in other ways. I can work while I'm in transit; I can work while waiting in a queue; I can work while sitting on a cafe; I can work while waiting for my kids to fall asleep...

This might not work for everybody, but I also don't really separate my "job time" and my "personal time." I tried that and it just made me more stressed. I just do what I have to do when I have to do it. Likewise, when something personal comes up in the middle of the day, I feel free to do it because I know I have the capacity and psychological freedom to finish what I need to do for work after hours.

And yes, sometimes I get very little sleep. It's past 2am right now... That's the only regrettable part in this whole journey. The body needs sleep.

I do wish there was more time. I could use it. I can do more with it.

What a journey this has been. I just realized that I wrote my first blog post last July -- the day I decided on my pseudonym. As soon as I posted it, I saw how poorly designed my website was that I ha

The Transition - "Casual" Writer to "Serious" Writer

I used to be a writer; at least, that's how I liked to think of myself. When I was younger, I used to write a lot more -- I would write in my diaries daily; sometimes, I would open my diary several ti
