I've mentioned to you before how the ideas in my head compete for my attention. Well, apparently, so does the real world.
I've found myself over the last couple of months in the midst of a raging battle. My creative side and my practical side have been at odds, and I've battled with both as they demanded absolute attention instead of remaining in balance. My creative side has all these stories in my head -- some of which aren't quite right for the J. Leigh James brand, and my imagination wanted to explore some new ideas and new approaches. And maybe even a new brand.....
My practical side, however, wanted to focus on the real world instead of the one in my head. The world where college choices and student loans had to be decided, where I needed to make decisions about the next "chapter" of my life and how it might impact my family. So many changes and real world events seemed to overwhelm the voices in my head, and for a while, they were silent.
Now the voices are screaming for attention, and I'm very excited to share with you that after some "radio silence" J. Leigh James is back! I've just published A Boy Named Winter and Quincey is right behind him.
I can't say that my life is back in balance, if anything, the pendulum has simply swung to the other end.
How do you find balance when life is crazy?
