I cannot believe July is already here. It feels as though the days days since my last post zipped by like a line of falling dominoes and, before I knew it, over a month has passed by. My goal was to begin posting again at least once a week. But life proved that you do not always have the time to do everything you set out to accomplish.
I am a single mother who works over forty hours a week at a low-paying job that barely covers my monthly rent, utilities, groceries, and attorney fees for the dissolution of my marriage. Knowing that I do not want to spend the rest of my life working in a factory fuels my ambition to work even more on my novels.
But time is not as abundant as I need it to be. Between work, visits to the laundry mat, household chores, grocery shopping, and quality time with family and friends, any free time I do have left to pursue my writing career is minimal and quite depressing. But I persevere and try my hardest to utilize every second I have available to work on my writing projects. It’s not always easy, and time may not be on my side, but know I am not giving up. My dream is far too important to me to ever stop writing.
