It feels so good to get back to blogging! I apologize for being gone for so long. First I had a cold, then my dog destroyed my laptop and I had to get it fixed, then the holidays came up… Well, you get the picture. I let life get the best of me. It’s a shame that I started a new series and then all of that came up.

That’s the trouble with writing, isn’t it? So many times we let life get the best of us, and then we seem to not have time at all. Don’t get me wrong, I made time for editing once I got my laptop back. I made time late at night when everyone else was asleep if I didn’t have a chance during the day!

We’ve all been there. We all let life get in the way at some point or another. I’ve been writing on a normal basis for less than a year, and I still let life get in the way. I know, it’s difficult sometimes. I know how busy life is. There’s kids, holidays, jobs…the list goes on and on. Trust me, I know.

We can get through it. There’s a way to make sure we have time. It’s called making time. Just fifteen minutes a day. Heck, even five minutes a day is better than nothing! Who can’t spare an extra five minutes? If you want to write, and I mean REALLY want to write, you can squeeze in an extra five minutes. Trust me. You may surprise yourself and get more done than you think.

Life gets in the way. It becomes difficult to find time. You know what? I don’t care. If you have time to read this, you have time to squeeze in five minutes. What are you still doing here? Go write. Right now. One, two, three, go.
