Book Writing & Blogging

I think I am doing what most writers do when they are writing a book and that is to write both the blog and book at the same time. I write a few pages on my project and then seek release through my website. It provides a nice balance actually and I need that while writing pain. Sometimes it feels like someone is pulling on my spine while writing about my life and I need to change the channel or I’ll explode. So I blog.

I know some authors like to disconnect from it all while writing their books. I’m not an author so I’m learning as I go. I can’t really disconnect from HarsH ReaLiTy… it is my baby, it is my virtual home. Gary might steal the China.

How do you balance it all? With added work in my day job I find myself falling behind on comments and for that I apologize. Comments are always important to me and shares are just as awesome. I feel a reblog is one of the highest compliments and I welcome them. I’ll catch up on comments soon and I’m moving some posts back here that got lost.

  1. I’m not a writer, so I can only imagine how much you have on your plate at the moment. However, I think we are all quite familiar with the feeling of being overwhelmed and not always being on top of everything. Love your blog. Your loyal readers are here, even if it takes a moment to comment backπŸ˜‰

  2. I didnt start blogging until I wrote my book, but now that Im writing another book, I do both. Im in a different frame of mind when Im working on my book, so I use blogging as a break, while still keeping my writers mind engaged. Does that make any sense?πŸ™‚

  3. I do about the same thing. Right now, a new book is germinating in my mind so I spend a lot of time blogging instead. I am not easily overwhelmed, but I find with writing, I become overwhelmed and must rest my brain after about two hours. Sometimes I can go back to the writing and sometimes not.
