I’ve been thinking this problem over for a long time now, and I can’t seem to come to a solution. So, I figured I’d better take the question outside of myself and see if you might help?
This question will pertain to writers mostly, but I suppose that others who are multipassionate might relate.
I find it a struggle to give the necessary time to both my blog and my writing. True, my blog is a form of writing for me. I utilize the same tools of the craft. At least I try. See, I included the obligatory statement of humility. My point: I spend a lot of time writing each blog post. Even the posts that I assume will be quick often take double or triple the amount of time that I estimate. I can’t help it. I’m a writer, and I love writing.
My problem, my real point, is that I am also a writer outside of blogging. I have several pieces that I’m working on, some more extensive than others. But when I focus on these pieces, my blogging gets neglected. I’m finding it difficult to manage both. I have some ideas of what to do, of course, but I’m not certain I’ve considered everything.
I won’t tell you my ideas yet because I’d like for all ideas to be voiced. Later, after reading your suggestions and doing more research, I’ll write a follow-up post with what I’ve determined is the best solution for me. Someone may stop by this post and read your comments and get benefit from it, even if they don’t come back for my follow-up post.
So let me ask you, how do you deal with finding writer/blogger balance? Help! There’s no shame in asking for a little help. A lot of help is also welcome. 🙂
