I never meant to be gone so long. I knew my priorities had shifted, there wasn’t a choice. But in a blink, months have flown by.
A few months ago my life shifted to focus even more heavily on my kids and family than usual. It’s all good. It’s just how life flowed for a while. I’ve still be writing, well, editing since that happens to be the stage the stories are in. It’s social media and my website that have gotten lost in the twist and turns of daily living.
It hasn’t been on purpose. I have a myriad of excuses, but what it comes down to is a choice. Do I write stories, or do I work on blogs and social media? There hasn’t been enough time in the day for both. And since writing keeps me sane… well the answer seems obvious on that one.
I’m still on Twitter and Facebook. I even started up an Instagram account (though I’m still basically clueless on that app at the moment).
And life is switching again, which is bringing more balance between personal and author life. So, while my double life continues, it is flowing back to more of a balance between my author time and family time.
I can’t guarantee it will continue down this path, and I will likely still only blog once a month instead of weekly as I had originally intended. But I will be on here, and, no matter what, I will always continue writing stories. I do like my sanity after all.
