Before I had kids, I used to love to write. I was writing stuff all the time. I even put together a writing group at a local book store. It was my form of relaxation.
Then I had kids, um 4 kids to be exact. And my primary form of relaxation was sleep. Any sleep!
I got more involved in my kids' lives. More involved in how to help them, feed them and shelter them. There is nothing wrong with that. I will continue to focus most of my energy on my children but I need a little 'me' time.
I am going to devote one full hour everyday to doing something that brought me so much joy before kids. I am going to write.
I know I will be rusty. I know most of my writing will not be Pulitizer Prize worthy. I know most of it will not even be worthy of publishing. But it will mine.
And it will give me joy. Joy I can share with my family.
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo out there?
