Does Your family get jealous of your writing time?

Does your family get jealous of your writing time?

One of my (young adult) children begrudges my writing and promotion time A LOT! She feels I ignore her (them) and she'd rather I not blog or do any promotion except pay someone else to do all my promotion. Unfortunately, I don't have the means (not yet anyway) to hire a publicist or assistant to do all my promotion and advertising. Honestly, it would be nice to have all my time as writing time.

Of course I spend time with my family. I think I hang out with them a lot. Tonight we went out to dinner, then we spent a couple hours browsing at Barnes & Nobles, then we went shopping at Target. Earlier today, I went to the college with her, then shopping. I've done no writing, except this blog post, today.

My youngest child is 19 so I don't have small children at home anymore. That would be different. I have adult children living at home. Believe me, I love it that my children want to spend quality time with me. I love them. Yet, this anger is frustrating!

Am I the only one who gets flack from family for writing?
