Stresses of Writing: NaBloPoMo

What unique stresses do you think women writers experience?

I can only tell you what stresses I have. I also happen to be a woman. Men probably have similar problems, right?

  • Perfection. I don’t want to publish a book if it’s not perfect. This is also the reason that it has taken so long to publish one book.
  • Day job. I would love to quit my day job. It’s just not possible right now. Maybe if I published that book then I could quit my day job.
  • Sleep. I sleep, which takes time away from writing. Stre
  • Too many irons on the fire. Not literally. I don’t even know where the real iron is at the moment. I do have several projects that I’m working on right now. It’s kind of important to prioritize. If it’s not something that fits into what I want to accomplish, then it can wait until another time.
  • Mommyhood. Mommyhood takes precedence over everything else. So if the kids are calling for juice and ice cream, I better find some before there is a riot. Sometimes I’m lucky and I can combine projects and mommyhood.
  • YouTube. I’m so distracted by YouTube. Darn you YouTube for being so entertaining. Plus, I’ve had that Kelly Clarkson stuck in my head.This one . . .

I am totally driving my boyfriend crazy by singing and carrying on around the house. So now I’m distracting.

  1. Hey destino, I think so many of us writers struggle with most of what you mentioned.Sleep is important too. And, as writers we also have to read which takes precious time away from the act. One of my biggest struggles is patience while I practice and strengthen my writing muscles.My goal is to be prolific, but writing (and reading ) all on a regular basis helps us to write more. And, of course losing the perfection. 🙂 Thanks for your post!
