Respect the Work

Do the people in your life respect your work? Do you?

When you’re trying to write, or paint, or whatever your chosen creative outlet is, how do you make the folks around you understand that it’s important and you need to do it, to be left alone and not questioned while you do it? Do you do that? Is doing that selfish, or necessary? Do you feel bad about it when you speak up or lock yourself away?

Having a lot of those thoughts lately. I know there’s a lot going on, a lot of responsibilities to fulfill, but in my mind, trying to write, trying to create is just as important as sorting out the move or dragging furniture around. Maybe moreso, because it helps me push my illnesses – mental and physical – aside, at least a little bit. Plus, it’s pretty much the only thing I can do that might generate any form of income on my part at this point.

What does everyone else think?

    I’m writing a novel or two (or trying to lol) but only as a hobby as my job is more on the engineering side and has nothing to do with writing. (Unless if you count reports and procedures as writing lol). However for upcoming Nanowrimo, I already prepped my husband that my free time will mostly be spent on it. I don’t have much of a social life so I don’t have to prep my friends hehehe.
