Fitting it all in

So, today I signed up for a 30 day trial membership on Artfire, and thus am stretching myself even thinner. I'm someone who believes in living each day to the fullest, but at the same time not running around like a maniac. Many people reading this know exactly what I mean; it's a hard balance to strike. I want to do what I do well, but at the same time, my top priorities in life are my religion and my family. My creative endeavors come third - a very close third, but third all the same.

Artfire has a 45 day regime as you start up your account with them, and I think I shall try to do it. Try is the key word. If it's too much and I can't do it and look after my children, I shall allow myself to fail miserably :-). Besides. I still have this short story to finish and another that I'm ready to start writing next. One thing about packing my schedule full, I rarely feel dull and out of ideas - I'm always bursting with the one that I've been trying to get down for the past few weeks.

I know most of my readers (yes, both of you) are very successful in your creative ventures. How do you fit it all in? I try to set low daily goals. One new item in my shop or revise the listings of two items. Write a scene. Day after day, those little dribs and drabs of effort really add up.
