I have been such an inconsistent blogger lately. Things have been crazy around here; trying to sew my girls Easter dresses with them and editing two projects at once! It's left me with little time to do much else.
During all this craziness, the thought of simplfying my life always comes to mind. What can I clear from my plate to make my life easier?
Obviously I can't get rid of my children (nor would I want to....well, I guess it depends on the day!). And the hubby is a pretty vital part of my life (even though I have to wash his sweaty gym clothes). I'd actually be lost without them in my life.
So what are my other commitments? Well, there are lots of them....one of them being writing.
Although some people would say the writing could go, that it's not important, that other things should take priority. I'd say they're not a writer.
Because the writers I know couldn't LIVE without being able to write. Some might write everyday, some a few times a week. Others have a strict schedule while others might only write when the inspiration strikes. In any case, they're all writers. And I know that their brains would explode if they were prohibitied from writing. Well, mine would.
Plus, writing gives me a release. I can vent, create, inspire, love. I can make people smile, laugh, cry, kill. There are worlds that I can visit, live in, long for. I can bring people together, or tear them apart.
I have control.
Maybe that's why I write. Because, in a world where it seems there's so little we can influence, so much that we are powerless to, writing allows me to have that control.
So, why do you write? What's your favorite part about it?
