Linda Mercury’s Other Creative Passion

Happy New Year! 

We are rocking 2013 with 
The Resolutions Tour!

Today, I'm over @
Maggie Jaimeson's Blog
Helping her Take a Vacation…on a Budget!

Join author Linda Mercury as she dishes about My Resolution. 

Linda says; How does one make time for those important “Other” Creative Passions? If you are a writer, you might also love watercolors or flower arranging or the dark magics of the fiber arts.

My other creative passion?  Napping.  I have a long history of insomnia and anxiety, so sleep is always at a premium for me.

I usually don’t have the uninterrupted time for a full three hours of uninterrupted rest. So I got sneaky. I ‘rest my eyes’ for five minutes at my desk. Or I park my car in a quiet corner of the grocery store, lay back, and listen to a relaxation tape. If my schedule is completely packed, I bend over and rest my forehead on the counter while I’m cooking dinner.

Your need for this second passion whispers to you, in the odd moments of your life, “I could totally do something I need right here.”

And that is how you make time for all your passions.”


How about you, readers? Do you struggle to find time and energy for what's most important? Leave a comment!

  1. If I don't get 8 hours of sleep I can't function so that would make me stressful. Right now it's having another family(my oldest daughter's) living with us.

  2. Intersting idea to think of sleep as a creative passion. I would agree actually. I think it is in sleep, relaxation, that our mind is free to roam and create.

    I hear you about the rest thing. I've worked hard to get myself up to a consistent 5 hours per night. Beyond that is a crapshoot. Sometimes I can manage an hour nap during the day, but not often.

  3. I would love to nap but then it's hard to go to sleep at night. I just try for the solid night of sleep and if it's not enough, thank god for coffee!

  4. I did not get enough sleep last night, so today am in zombie mode, kinda. The downside of being past 40 is No Naps, or No Sleeping through the night. Dang.

    And as Jessie said, thank God for coffee! I make it Pac NW style … strong enough to dilute with latte and still stand a spoon up in it!
