I raised my hand when I read this blog post about writer’s guilt. But I experience guilt on both sides of the writer’s spectrum. I have guilt when I’m not writing enough or querying more agents. And I feel guilt when I’m spending a lot of time in my office away from family or missing social events.
I feel inadequate when trying to find the right balance between living and writing- or just being consistent for that matter.
Currently, my goal is to put my butt in my office chair once a day, regardless of how long. Usually, I’m productive even it’s just 15 minutes. It’s better than nothing . It’s better than me thinking- I don’t have much time. I’ll wait till I have a good hour to dedicate in the office. So far it’s been helpful !
Any one else have these difficulties or tips to help combat the writer’s guilt ?
