Anyone with small children ever able to do this?
If you’re home with your kids, are you able to sneak away for a few minutes and quickly get into your WIP? Or do you require absolute concentration in order to pull out a half-decent sentence? When my son was small I was able to bring my laptop into whatever room he was playing in and work on my WIP. Now that I have 2 kids, and the youngest is 15months I find it impossible to concentrate with anyone around! There is no way any coherent thoughts will make their way into my MS.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done though. So, what I’m trying to do is get blog posts, planning, housework done during the day, around the kids. Then, at night, I can give my writing my complete focus…unless like last night when my darling daughter woke up every hour for no apparent reason-that is until I spotted 3, yup 3, teeth trying to bust their way through her sore gums. So today is all about stealing away as many minutes I can and trying to make up for last night’s lack of work.
And thank goodness for nap time…for my daughter, not me 🙂
