Here's a priority check for you...
In my upcoming release, To Write A Wrong, the heroine's career was very important to her, almost to her detriment. Have your priorities ever gotten out of whack?
As for me, there are times, when I'm on deadline or it's close to the ACFW Conference (I'm the Conference Director), my life becomes ultra hectic and I find myself spending more and more time in front of my computer. I'm talking 10-12 hours a day sometimes. Yes, most of the time, I'm pretty balanced, but there are certain instances...when that happens, usually my kids are quick to remind me that they are more important than my work. And if I really lose sight, a quick Scripture written on an index card and tossed on my keyboard is a quick reality check for me.
What about you and your family? How do you balance? Everyone who leaves a suggestion in the comment section will receive the opening chapter for To Write A Wrong.
