Cutting Down



I have said before that I try to do to much. For the first time I have to do something, make a choice. After talking to my older brother I know what I now have to do, even though I don’t want to.  I have to  post less on my blog. I spend so much time  researching my blog posts I have no time to write, to read, to do things I need to do for my son’s after school activities, and all the little things that go with being a mom of three young boys. I guess that is why most writers either don’t have kids or wait until they get older. So, what do I plan to do? I plan to free up my time by blogging less. I love blogging every day, or almost every day, but kids take up a lot of time and I do still need to work on  my novel. So I will go back to doing an artist of the week, and my segments will run for 1-2 months. I apologies to all my readers, I will post again on Friday so I can do a great post for you all. Thank you all for reading and liking my posts.


About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.

  1. wow – that’s kinda sad, i look forward to your blog every day – but i get where you’re coming from too – maybe sometimes less can be more – don’t go far star

  2. wow – i hesitate to click ‘like’ on this because i look forward to reading your blog so much every day – good luck with the new approach i am sure you won’t go far

    • I know kyle I am sorry! I don’t want to cut back, but I need to work on my novel too. I feel like I can make my posts better too if I give my self more time to work on them. I may even be able to do two a week, but thats tops. I won’t go any where and we can still chat because I will still check whats going on. Did you get that email I sent you, what did you think? What did you mean by won’t go far?

      • You know I may even be able to put a little snipet from my writing in a post every day, that way I am still doing something, and my artist posts can be better in the long run.

  3. 😦 I just fell in love with your blog… but I completely understand… It’s not always the easiest juggling act, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    • Thank you, I love to hear that. I am not going away compleatly just cutting back, I was thinking of posting some of what I am working,like the novel, or poetry. and the artist of the week insted of the day.

  4. Priorities take presedence! I’ve had to cut down to every other week day And no more than 900 words. Take care Of yourself among all those other responsibilities!
