As a writer, I struggle with parcling out my day while trying to set aside time for writing. I'm not always in balance. If the truth be known, more times than nought, I'm out of balance.
We all live busy lives but when writing is added to the mix, priorities get shuffled, stress comes calling, and exhaustion works into our minds and bodies. Commitments to family, friends, work, exercise, meals, leisure time all compete for our attention. As a writer, the time I set aside tugs hard. And, when I'm in the zone, balance is lost and chaos reigns.
I would love to hear from fellow writers and readers (reading can be quite as absorbing and time consuming as writing) on how you find the struggle for balance. And those enlightened souls who manage to do so, please share your secrets with the rest of us.
