This Thing I Started Saying

“No.”

Why is it so hard for me to say no to people? But it is. I think a great thing about giving yourself permission to take writing seriously, like as a legit career, is that you begin to feel like your time has real value. Because, unfortunately, being a stay-at-home-mom does nothing to help me in that arena.

So when people ask me to write something or read something, and I already feel swamped. I’ve started saying I’m too busy. Which is the truth!

Next step: stop feeling guilty about it. I’m working on it. Really.
