Sometimes Other Things Are More Impt.

One of the previous days this week, I had a hard time getting into the writing groove and finally was in the middle of a scene that was working after dinner, when I got a call from a friend who has recently had a relationship crash. She wanted to go to dinner.

Of course I went. Even if this had been an intense deadline week, I would have gone. Like the title says, some things are more important than writing. I DID go back and finish the scene, and continued to drag along to my wordcount after we talked. Nothing, for me was lost, but I gave some comfort to a friend.

That is always more important. LIFE is more important.

So may you LIVE today.

Yep, that is so true. It's always good to have your priorities straight, which can be rough sometimes when deadlines are *always* looming on the horizon.

Glad to hear you have many deadlines! But friends must be a priority.

Take care,
