You all know I'm a news junkie. Hard news. Soft news. Celebrity news. Local. International. I don't care. I want to know it all because I never know when something important will pop out for me.
So last week I was reading something about Angie Harmon. The focus was on Mommy Guilt. She has (I think) three small kids and she's currently working 90 hours a week - and she's not even a writer!
She said the most constructive advice she received was from Kyra Sedgwick: Keep your heart where your heels are.
I don't know about you, but that made perfect sense to me.
How many times have we wanted to be playing with family when we're writing?
How many times have we wanted to be writing when we're participating in family time?
How often does our mind stray to our new shiny idea when were striving to complete our WIP?
Keep your heart where your heels are.
When we're writing, keep our hearts with our writing, with our stories, with our characters.
When we're having fun with our friends and families, have fun. Make it quality time. Make the experience a wonderful memory.
And that shiny new idea? Make notes. Let the ideas develop. Don't stop working on the WIP.
Live in the moment. Enjoy all life has to offer.
Will we be able to always do this? Of course not.
But if we try, we will enjoy and experience more and waste less of life.
It's a choice.
The choice is up to you.
