I'm friends with some other authors & even in a few reader groups for them. I hear their stories, and I swear everyone is juggling so much in life and pumping out books every 2 months, on average (or so it seems). I'm lucky if I can get 1-2 out a year.
I will admit I'm a busy bee myself. I have an almost 3-year old and a 1 year, and they take up a lot of my time. My hubby leaves earlier then me and gets home later, so I'm the one getting them ready in the mornings & picking them up from daycare. I work 8-5, and then when we get home, I feed them & play with them until it's time for bed. Thankfully, the hubby cooks!!! YAY!!!! But, I do the cleaning, and dishes, and laundry...etc. Basically, I do the chores. Not to say the hubby doesn't try to help, but realistically, it's faster if I just do it (because I'm a bit of a control freak and I have specific ways of doing things) than if I show him how. Sometimes, though, I'm too tired to care & however he does it, he does it. lol. By the time I'm done with all this, I'm ready for bed. I write nowadays when I have a few minutes to spare.
And yet, I know I'm not the only one with so many responsibilities. So...I don't know how others do it. But, I'm 100% envious. And also, more power to them! But for now...I've got one completed story that will be coming out soon - details to come as soon as I have them. And I'm working on another. Fingers crossed for me!
Okay, rant over...carry on ;) hehe
