Life juggles

Sometimes I feel as if I'm juggling a ton of glass balls.

There's the Christian ball.
There's the wife ball.
There's the mom ball.
There's the daughter-in-law ball (inlaws live with us).
There's the writer ball.

And there are countless other ones as well.

My problem is balancing all of these without losing my mind. Sometimes I feel I'm doing great in one area but two other balls are crashing to the floor. Sometimes I want to drop ALL the balls and run away from them.

It would be nice if I could be Superwoman, and cover all the areas of my life without a hitch - but it never seems to work out that way.

Am I the only one to feel this way?

Writing goals for 2007

I already posted these on Dean Wesley Smith's site, but thought I'd put them here as well. I'll try to keep you up to date on how I'm doing with these goals throughout the year.

1) Write 10,000 words/week (weekly column counts towards this total)
2) Write at least 1 new short story/week
3) Complete 4 new novels in 2007 (cheating slightly on this one - counting a novel I finished the first draft on in December but will be working on 2nd draft next week).

So last week I got 6,012 words done (not quite 10,000 but a nice start) and 2 new short stories out.

Will keep you posted. :-)
