The last couple of months have been crazy for me. My husband and I both work full-time. His job is on the far side of town, so I've been delivering kids to and from school. I volunteer with a local writing group. I'm part of a weekly critique group.
Life on its own is very busy.
So where does writing fit in?
I wish I could say I write in every spare moment I have. I carry my notebook with me. My brain is always spinning with my characters, settings, and plots. Distractions are everywhere, though, so getting anything on paper (or on the computer) is tough.
Still, this is my passion. I have to tell these stories, for me if no one else.
I have to make time.
Much like I did when my kids were younger, I write when they go to bed. I don't watch television. I've limited my social media time (although I still fight that battle!). That gives me a good solid two hours every day to work on something writing-related.
As I've mentioned previously, I always have several projects going at once. I'm working on Reconciled, revising Outlaw (link coming soon), starting back into Time Spinners (again, link coming soon), and trying to plot other ideas as they come.
If only I could forgo sleep...
