Being a mother of three, a wife, a teacher, and a writer is all about balance. During the summer I am markedly better at all of the above. I have time to be with my kids, clean, cook, and develop new lessons for the school year.
My life during the school year is hectic. Every morning I wake up at 5am. I check emails and read up on blogs for good books to read. I like to see how authors are promoting their books since I am new to the publishing world, and early in the morning is the best time for me to check some sites out.
After getting my kids ready for school, I spend my day teaching and prepping lessons. When I get home the crazy begins. Between shuffling my son to his after school activities and entertaining fur year old twins, I take a break from it all and go on a jog. I get some of my best ideas for my stories while running and listening to music. I find myself laughing, crying, and sometimes stopping to type an idea on my phone while running. I am not sure why I get my ideas while running or right before bed, but there it is.
Weekends are where I get most of my writing done. My husband always allows me an entire day to hide away, ignore my kids, and write. It is in those moments that I feel free to express myself without worrying about the clock or interruptions.
Every night, after I tuck the kids into bed, I either spend an hour or two writing or reading. It is a constant battle because there are way too many amazing books out there to read, but I have just as many floating around in my mind begging to be told. In between the craziness, I find time to research marketing, ideas for my book, and even time for my husband. It’s a crazy life, but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. Well, maybe to be a NY Times best seller!
