Last week I was approached by the lovely Charissa Weaks to join in on some writing fun – er, yeah, we’ll go with *fun* – and talk about the biggest obstacle I’ve faced as a writer. Of course I was excited to oblige, Charissa’s an all-around awesome person (who I can’t wait to meet in person one day), and hey, let’s face it, I’m a writer, and I’ve definitely had struggles. 🙂
When it came down to decided which was my biggest, I actually had to make a list, then score each obstacle to find which I’d consider my biggest. And, well, this should come as no surprise – since I’ve addressed it here and here and here on the blog before – but my biggest obstacle would be time management.
This is something I believe many of us face throughout our writing careers. Something we each struggle with from time to time, especially in those moments where we’re up against a deadline and things just seem to fall apart at home. Something we should have a constant reminder of before it’s too late and we end up burning ourselves out from trying be everything to everyone.
While I do have a few other obstacles that I’ve faced, and continue to face, as an author, but since Charissa asked for my “biggest” obstacle, I definitely had to go with time management. But if she’d asked for a quick list of what I felt my obstacles were, well … let’s just say there’d be quite a few. 😉
Please head over to Charissa’s blog, have a read, and join the conversation! Tell us what obstacles you’ve faced and how you’ve dealt with the hurdle.
See you there! 🙂
