Thanks for this article. A and B are kicking my ass as I’m writing my first book. I work full-time, am completing a Bachelor’s degree and raising a son (he’s four). Thank God for my parents’ support or I think I’d be stark raving mad by now or heavily medicated for major depression. But I’m writing. *chuckles* I have to consciously tell myself not to type “trying to write” because I’ve actually started my book — 3 chapters in. That’s more than I was this time last year. I must struggle on because I must finish. It’s that simple and it’s that hard.
