As my buddies know, I've just returned from a month-long bloggy break. After the A-Z Challenge, I think most of us needed it.
What have I been doing? Packing, moving from Colorado to California and starting a new/old job. Without going into details, because this must be familiar to most of you, I needed to make money outside of my less-than-lucrative writing career. Who knew?
When my old employer called and asked me to come back to work, I couldn't say 'no,' even though it's only a guaranteed six months (whether I remain is dependent on if someone else decides to stay or move on. And then, of course, it's up to me whether I accept the permanent job if it's offered to me). In any case, we're ready to move on from Colorado - we love winter but nine months of winter are too much. My life is sort of in limbo....
So now I'm in California working and the hubs is in Colorado trying to sell the house.
Which brings me to, HOW IN THE WORLD CAN I CONTINUE MY WRITING CAREER WHILE WORKING FULL TIME?
I know that so many of you already do this, but I'm struggling. I'm tired at the end of the day and not feeling the least bit creative. I have a novel and a novella to edit (the novella is really close, though. Eeep!). Not to mention blogging/blog visits - and oh how I missed you all!
Help! I need advice! How do you do it?!
How are you all doing?
