It never fails, every summer I get behind on my blogging and my writing.
Summer is so busy around my house, we don't even find the time to go on vacation. But, next year we are going to cut down on our garden. That will help out a lot.
The garden and the potato bugs took over our life this year. Did you know that potato bugs also love to devour tomatoes? Well, take my word for it, they do!
We have been canning spaghetti sauce, freezing what little berries we have, digging drain ditches, planting grass seeds and trying to keep up with the fast growing grass. And, next week we will begin freezing corn!
I often wonder how some writers manage to go to the summer conferences, participate in the great events that are online during the summer months, and continue to write.
I am continuing to write, though, just on a much smaller scale than I would like.
I am thankful for the monthly column I write for kids for Two Lane Livin' magazine. It makes me keep a deadline and find time to write each month.
I am thankful for Appalachian Wordsmiths, my weekly writer's group. It encourages me to continue to edit and to come up with something new to bring each week.
Now, if I could just continue to submit during the summer.
How about you? Do your summer chores/activities cut back on your writing time?
