I titled a post on my novel blog "Motivation," too, though in that case, I've had the motivation: I've worked on my novel every single day since Saturday, nearly a week now.  Apparently, though, motivating myself to meet two goals at the same time is more challenging, since my horses have been ignored in the meantime.  I did ride Panama last night, and my trainer rode Rondo today, but that's it since the last time I posted.  I didn't even get out to the barn over the weekend, as I'd planned -- too busy writing.

I think part of the problem is that I am very close to the end of the novel, so I'm eager to write as much as possible in order to get there more quickly.  If that is true, it should get easier to balance writing time vs. riding time once the novel is finished and I'm working on revisions.  We'll know in a few days, then, if that is the case.

What about you?  How do you balance motivation for riding without abandoning the other things you want to do?
