Every day I tell myself I'm going to write. This has been going on since June, so over two months. During the summer, I was busy with the kids and the house, but still there was time to do something. School started and I find that I haven't had a spare minute to breathe. I'm loving teaching creative writing, but I am grading 54 short stories every two weeks. I also have three normal classes to grade as well. At this point, I think my personal writing endeavors will have to be pushed aside for a bit longer. I am swamped with school, kids and starting next week...soccer. I'm going to make an honest effort to write at night, but I'm already going to bed at 9:00. That being said, I'm logging off because I have a cold and need to rest for 30 minutes before the second half of my day starts. :)
Now, I turn this thought to you...is writing one of the first or last things you sacrifice to keep your family afloat? How do you do it?
