Relatives are important – for several reasons:
- They love you
- One or two of them brought you up
- They won’t always be here
- You might not always be here
Of course, there are other reasons, but the point is this – don’t eschew love for the next blog post, ad, page, chapter, novel or whatever it is you’re writing.
As this month progresses, I’m seeing fewer opportunities to complete a couple of personal projects and competitions (including the Big Finish short story) – Kasterborous and my quest to find writers for The Gadget Monkey must take priority beyond submitting a good amount of work for Bright Hub.
Which is why I dropped the chance to stay home on Saturday night to laboriously publish Doctor Who news on Kasterborous after a couple of days writing tech articles. With a trip planned on Sunday taking me away until midweek, it seemed more important to see family members before leaving.
Sure, I was left with a lot of work to complete upon my return – but returning refreshed and full of beans was worth it!
