Updates and Ideas @barbbradley #amwriting

Okay, I know I have really sucked at posting every Tuesday but 2015 has been a rough one. For those of you who haven't seen my post at the MFRW website I'm putting the link here so you can see what I've been though.

Writing that was very cathartic and has helped me moved past the issues, but it has made me realize that maybe I should blog about how I write. Over the years people have always asked me how I find the time to write. I never thought I was a very busy person until the end of October. I always felt it just sounded like it.

I mean I worked, had a small child to raise, and wrote. What aspiring author didn't have a schedule like mine? I became the president of my local RWA chapter during that time as well so was very active in the chapter. I also belonged to a critique group.

I always make time for my writing. If I don't my characters will beat me up.It;s also an escape for me. With everything going on I need that. I think it's one of the reasons I've been focusing on my writing instead of trying to promote my work.

So what I hope to do is add - I know - I can't keep up with what I already try to do with this blog...
But I thought I should give a little insight into my life as well as my writing.

On a good week you'll get a blog on the handouts I have, a blog on what I'm working on that week, and my interviews. I'm hoping this will help me post more often or at least twice a week which is my basic goal right now. We'll see how it goes...
