Wishing for More Hours in the Day

Wow, life is pretty busy just now, which is both exciting and frustrating.

The workplace I'm temping at just extended my contract for another 4 weeks. Great from a money perspective, but not so great for my writing!

I have actually started a new piece, putting pen to paper for the first time in months. The first chapter is done and I hope to begin the second today.

A couple of weeks back I finished an editing job. The project had a tight timeframe and was rather stressful, but I got there in the end. Today I must start a new editing job, so that will take up my free time after work too.

Then there is the wedding planning (the big day is just 4 months away), my studies, finding time for reading, writing letters to my penpals, updating things online.... Not to mention all those everyday household chores.

The result - one frazzled brain.

My two biggest regrets are the lack of time to write and the lack of time to 'talk' to other writers and readers. I see great conversations/discussions happening on here and on some of my other social networking pages and yet I don't have time to join in the way I'd like to. I've even missed the weekend blog hops the last couple of weeks, which is sad.

Oh well, such is life...and I must get off here now if I am to get any writing done today! Just wanted to let you all know, I am around and I do try to at least scan through all the new posts each day. I just don't have the time to comment much right now. Bear with me.

  1. I know the feeling, Nicki! Still, you seem to do much better than me since you reply to my letters much sooner than I can get to yours. ;)
