Balancing life and writing sounds a lot easier said than done! I have to laugh a little when I think of this, because writing is just one of the many pieces of the puzzle to my life. Writing does seem to be interwoven in a lot of my day to day, whether I’m able to accomplish all of my writing projects or not. I wish I could say that I have a great grasp on balancing life and writing. For me, it’s a little difficult to truly balance the two because I write best when it’s very early in the morning and when I’m in a creative mood. The funny thing is that I go to bed late because I have three children and they are my first priority. Their multiple activities makes me too tired to get up as early as I would like to, and when I’m tired, it’s difficult to be creative. So, many times I find myself taking late night naps. I will take a two-hour nap from nine o’clock to eleven o’clock at night and get up and write till one to two o’clock in the morning. So, by that time I’m well rested and my creative juices are fresh and flowing!
It’s important to remember that everyone’s needs a different balance. What works for me, may not work for you. I try to just be true to myself. Some of the things I do maybe a little non-conventional sometimes, but you have to do whatever works best for your circumstance. My best advice is to “just do you!” The balance will come.
The first friend leads a secret life of multiple personas that allows her to escape her own reality and ease into a life of deception long before her true identity is discovered.
At the pinnacle of her career, the second friend is self-driven, sexually suppressed, and highly explosive . . . blowing up at anyone who crosses her path. Her domineering ambition drives her into a collision course with herself and steers her in an unexpected direction that becomes life-altering.
The third friend is a single mother seeking refuge from a regretful past that has finally caught up with her present. Just when she thinks her future is solid, it begins to crumble as her fate is altered by a past romance that resurfaces . . . resulting in an unexpected resolution.
