My noisy husband and daughter converse and scuffle about in the same room as I’m writing this post.
Writing can be challenging. Not because I don’t have the time or can’t find the words. Rather, it’s due to the daily life situations we all deal with.
Right now I’m working with my stressed out daughter in helping her get ready for college, juggling family needs and looking for a new job. Now I need to clean my home before my brothers visit us today. We only have two hours to neaten up our place.
My daughter says, “Mom, get off the computer. We have to clean the house.”
“Okay. As soon as I finish my post.”
You see, I can’t use these challenges as an excuse not to write. If I do, I will never get any writing done.
I look at it this way: challenges are good for my nerves and self-discipline.
Here’s to reality writing.
