Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor. When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected – and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.
Guest Post: Balance
Thanks for the chance to join you on your blog!
Balance. How do we keep balance? This is a recurring theme in writing as in life, and I’m often asked something along the lines of how I keep sane as a writer, how I balance writing with the rest of my life, how I keep the creative juices flowing, etc.
These are great questions.
And, I realized long ago, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. What works well for one person may not work at all for another. So for whatever it’s worth, here are my thoughts on the topic:
I have found that allowing flexibility has been key for me. Some days, I am in the writing “zone” and can churn out tons of words on a manuscript that’s in-process. On other days, I am simply not in a “write new stuff” type of mood. And there are even occasional days when I don’t have the inclination to do anything writing-related.
For me, accepting instead of fighting this variability has kept the writing process fun and fresh, rather than making it a chore. On days when I’m in the “zone,” I go with it! On days when I don’t have creative juices flowing, I still stay productive by editing manuscripts, or doing book promotion and advertising. And on those occasional days when I want to step away from all things writing, I allow myself to do so. Granted, there are times when deadlines are looming – and there are times in life when you just have to hike up your britches and get ‘er done, whether you’re in the mood or not. But I surprisingly get more written, and better words written – and I get more done overall – when I allow myself to mix it up and step away when I need to, rather than trying to force creativity when it’s at a standstill.
Whatever your answer for finding balance, the key, of course, is making sure that you do what you need to do so writing remains a joy. Because that is what it’s all about.
