This year my husband and I have tried to say no.
As writers in this busy world, it’s okay to say no and focus on our priorities.
I’ve read that our lives should be story factories and that if it doesn’t help build the story it doesn’t belong.
I still need to focus on what’s at hand and finish what I’m working on. Not only do I need to say no to contests and other projects, I have to also say no to myself starting anything new. This is where I stopped NaNoWriMo this to me. I’ll finish that story later but Threads of Fate is the focus now.
Writing isn’t the only area of my life that I’ve had to say no in. Knowing my limits and honoring them are two different things.
