I’m blogging at Books & Such today, about the things we have to say “no” to when we choose to pursue certain passions. I don’t play golf, cook gourmet meals, or grow a garden. What have you given up?

    Nice topic.

    I’d like to take martial arts classes, but I don’t have time. I’d like to read more, too (not that I don’t read a lot). One thing I will not give up is time with my husband. That has factored into my decision to focus on my short stories and not pursue being a novelist at this time.
