The one chapter I would always skip in writing books was the chapter on making time to write. Why do we need to be reminded of this? Hell-o? Just write already.
That was the old me. I’m feeling a bit differently now. I just returned to full time work after nearly eight years as a stay at home mom. In the two weeks since I started the eight to five grind, I’ve written nada. Granted, I’ve moved back to my home state and into my mother’s house, but still you’d think I could find some time.
I’ve written two blogs though. I should get some points for that at least, right?
I used to write at night when I put the kids to bed, but now I’m so tired I can’t seem to write anything except a stupid post on facebook about how cold my office is.
Get up early you say. Kiss that plan goodbye. I am not a happy riser. That’s just not gonna happen. So I guess I’m screwed. No more writing for me. It was fun while it lasted.
Here’s the part where you help me. Shoot me comments full of working writer’s wisdom. I want to know how to best use my time. I’d go find one of my fav writing books and look up the chapter I skipped on this topic, but I’m too tired and have to get up and start the workday all over again.*Note: all comments about waking up early will get an eye roll or a finger. Just ain’t gonna happen.
