On Sundays, I like to write about things I, or other people do, for relaxation, hobbies. I’ve mentioned before that my main hobby is needlework. I make crazy quilts, I sew, (usually home décor items), I hand embroider.
Before I started writing full time, I would pick up my stitching at least three or four nights a week, now I haven’t touched it in a month. Funny thing is, I had more free time when I worked part time! How can that be?
When I worked for someone else, I had designated days off. I treated those days off as “me time” and did what I wanted, ie, stitch or garden, etc. Now that I am working for myself … I have neglected to make “me time”.
I write 5 days a week, usually from 9-3 and then I pick it up again after dinner and wrap up around 8 pm. I use Saturday for writing a week’s worth of blog posts, and Sunday is for reading a book I will review the following Thursday.
I am fast reaching the conclusion that something must give, if only because I have nothing new to report on my Sunday blog post!
Do you write full time or work for others full time? Do you remember to make ‘me time’ a part of your week?
