With all the writing I've been doing, I realized I was neglecting other things. I'm learning to balance writing with relationships. Both very important to me. One trick I've found to help me finish my word count earlier in the day is to leave the document I'm working on open. Then I can think about it, and add a sentence or two when I have the time. Speaking of time, the one year old boy I babysit just woke up from his afternoon nap, so time to go. But my story will still be waiting for me.
