Working With Distractions …

I’m currently trying to work on my first book. I’ve actually been keeping it a secret from mostly everyone in my family. I am really a private person and I don’t really like to tell about my writing. My Mother knows I have a website but she doesn’t know what it’s about. My family who don’t quite understand what I’m doing. They know that I love to write but they don’t know that I am taking this serious now. So until I know that I’m just going to find the time to just write as much as I can and just focus as much.
When you have a full-time job with normal obligations, it’s so easy to get distracted from your writing. When you have to work a full-time job and pay bills, anyone person will tell you, whether they’re writers or wanting to make a hobby into your new career, or starting your own business, that finding the time to discover and create something you’re passionate about is never easy. It’s all about finding and setting specific time to work towards your goal. I usually get distracted by the television too. Sometimes it slows me down, and then other times it can really spark an idea in my writing. It all just depends on the situation at the time and where I am in my writing.
All in all, distractions are only distractions if you let them be. All I can do is keep going and keep writing as much as I can. I hope to be able to submit my first manuscript to be published. I don’t even care what happened after that but then I’ll know what my next step would be once that’s done. All I can do is work hard and never give up.

    I’m private too. i have a Bible study blog here but i wrote a fiction novel under an alias. it’s like i compartmentalize my fiction from everything else. i don’t even tell my friends i published a novel or it would be tons of questions.
