You may have noticed that my posts have been a bit thin on the ground lately, and that I kind of fell of the face of the NaNoWriMo planet there. Things have been a bit hectic here at home, and when my attention is needed elsewhere, something in my huge list of ‘to-do's' has to go. So I thought I'd write a post about the priorities in my life.
1. Family – My family are really important to me, and being at home allows me to be able to work around their needs. Since my daughter is homeschooled, her care takes up a fair bit of my time, and helping my hubby with his work takes up another chunk. Sometimes, when someone is sick, or we have a lot of activities on, this is all I'm doing.
2. Writing my books – I love writing, and more than that, when I see people waiting for my next book, I want to get it out as soon as possible. Whenever my family don't need me, I'll probably be sitting at the keyboard, typing away on my next adventure.
3. Blog/Facebook/Twitter – when my family are happily settled, and I've written as much as I can for a while, I might have a bit of time to update my blog, facebook page, or chat on twitter. This doesn't happen as frequently as I'd like!
So if you notice that I've been quite for a while, it's probably because I'm either playing with my family, or desperately writing that next book.
How about your priorities? What comes first for you?
