Having Trouble Writing? Me Too

Good morning everyone. As you read this, I am just getting off of work and headed home to get kids up for school and then try to get some sleep.
Now that I’m working nights, the parts of the day are totally switched up. More than that, I’m totally falling behind on things that need done. Mainly my writing and my blogging. I’m still trying to figure out how to multi-task. But that’s one part of a life of an author.

First, I love being an author. I have always wanted to write. Ever since I was a child, that has been my dream. And now I am finally published. The problem? Trying to finish book two. It has taken waaaay too long and I am beginning to seriously doubt that I have the right stuff to, well write.

The reasons I’m behind? To name a few:

1. Family Time

I can not express the importance of family. Kids grow up so fast and time flies by like it is going out of style. So time with your loved ones is not to be overlooked. But sometimes, just sometimes, it would be nice to just be alone long enough to get a few

I know, I know. Every author dreams of doing nothing but staying at home writing that great book that will sell a million copies and become a best selling movie at the theater. I know I do. But until that happens, bills must be paid and the kiddos think they have

3. Sleep

Now we all know sleep is essential to our overall health. We have to have it. For most, it’s that time of night when you crawl into bed and drift off. But for me , it’s sleeping throughout the day like a vampire. Which sucks because I’m wasting valuable writin

4. Self Doubt

Because I’m so behind and my characters aren’t talking to my sleep infused brain, I am having some serious doubts. Doubts which involve if I am really meant to be a writer. I mean, I LOVE to write but if it is taking me this long (almost 2 years :() to finish book two, then do I really have to right stuff to write? Am I really good

5.Motivation

Sometimes I just lack the motivation to get going. I mean, I have the imagination and the want to but between finding the time to write  and sleep and life, I just can’t get myself moving. I think need a swift kic

6. Excuses

Everything above is an excuse. Logical and actual things but excuses all the same. In short, if I want to be an author, then I am going to have to do it.  For in my writing when and however I can. Stop doubting myself and realize that I can be whatever I want. Even if takes longer than I hope or want.
