It's always difficult for me to remain on task in the summer. First of all, my kids are home from school. Secondly, there's the-going-away-vacation-thing and the-company-staying-with-me-for-their-vacation-thing. Thirdly, my kids are home from school.
Because I can't possibly go the entire summer without writing, I've devised little sneaky writing escapes.
1) I wake up before everyone else and write for an hour. This one is not fun and since we all tend to stay up extra late in the summer, it also makes me grumpy so I limit the early writing to a max of three times a week.
2) I bring the kids to the playground and bring my laptop with me. Great plan except for this week when it's raining every day *ugh*
3) I leave the oldest one in charge while I sneak off to Starbucks for a couple hours.
4) On those days when I can't manage any of the above but my muse is screaming for attention, desperate times call for desperate measures. I leave my laptop in the bathroom and write a few lines at every visit.
How do you manage to squeeze in time to support your passion when the rest of the world is trying to fill up your day?
