I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been following my blog, it may seem like I stay connected to this computer, and to all things writing, but it's not true. I began seriously writing around 2004. Launched OSAAT Entertainment and published my first novel 2008, and yes, have been writing daily ever since. In the blend of things, that's not very long, or long ago. Before writing I was out there raising my family, living, and experiencing.
From my perspective, and experience, for young writers, I would (and I wink here) enjoy this time living and experiencing, and not worry about finding time to 'balance' it all. When you reach that spot where you feel as if you've seen it, and done it all, your mind... and fingers, won't find a place to stop writing. And for the seasoned writers, this is your time. You’ve juggled your time getting an education, partying and hanging out, wooing in a spouse, raising the kids, taking care of the house, working, and don’t forget balancing in hosting and attending all the family gatherings. I wouldn't in the least be concerned that they say "I" stay connected. To them we must say, "Yes, I do. I am in my prime. You had your time, now I'm having mine!"
And to everyone stopping by... YipYip HOORaY to SHEWRITERS Ball #7!!!
I hope it is a ball, and a joy to all!
