This past month has been a struggle for me.
I’m the kind of person who dives 100% head-first into everything I do. No matter what it is, if I’m going to spend any time on it, I’m going to give it my all.
So how am I supposed to juggle being a full-time photographer and being a writer.
I don’t just take photographs–I take the photos, edit the photos (hours and hours of post-processing), and I spend a good portion of each day emailing, talking on the phone, or meeting with clients. Fortunately, my husband takes on a good amount of the editing (and he shoots with me at all our sessions and weddings). But that doesn’t take away from the time I spend on the business; it just means I don’t have to spend any additional time editing photos. And after all of those things, I still have to run a blog to show off our beautiful work to potential brides and grooms.
So when I made the decision to add writing to my list of “Things I Need to Do Every Day,” I didn’t realize the kind of time commitment I was adding to my life. I’m on the verge of publishing my first novel. I have a compilation of short stories that I’m hoping to finish and release shortly after Rogue is published. And I’m trying to regularly update this blog about my progress and struggles.
two businesses + two blogs + social media = STRESS
How am I supposed to juggle everything?
