Parenting and Working and Writing and Anxiety and …

So.  I like to write.  I WANT to write.  

I also work full-time, have two kids (12 and 9), and and STILL battling depression and anxiety demons.

Self tends to come last, if I do anything for self, at all.  I tend to collapse in a chair after the kids go to bed, read for a while, then pass out.  My fanfiction writing has come to a screeching almost-halt. I hate that.  

I feel like I am failing in everything that makes me, ME.

I want to write a book.  I know I have one in me.

But what’s the best way to make it happen, while swinging swords at anxiety, depression, and helping my children deal with life’s surprises, and trying to be a somewhat acceptable spouse?

 

I did it! I won NaNoWriMo!

I have been absent for almost all of November, but now I’m back and proud to say that I am a 2012 Winner of NaNoWriMo!  Hurray!

My draft is rough – SOoooooo rough, but I don’t care.  It’s supposed to be rough – it’s a first draft!

Now, to set it aside for a while, and concentrate on finishing other works in progress.  Hurray!
