So it's been a busy week at work and I've been working on my WIP and a short story in the evenings. It's Friday, we have company coming in, in...oh... fifteen minutes? We're having a small party tomorrow night in honor of this company (and one of them is a chef, who is happily doing the cooking), which will require much preparation tomorrow. Sunday, I have a library panel and our company will still be in town. I realized while running around scooping cat boxes and changing sheets that I hadn't written my Sunday post and thought to myself, "When the hell am I gonna have time to do this?"
The answer, of course, was to drop everything and sit down with my laptop. The subject matter was easy this time around because I want to know what everyone's favorite 'squeezing in the writing no matter else is happening in your lives' techniques are.
Do you write on the bus/train/streetcar?
Do you carry mini-recorders with you while you walk?
Do you use notebooks and pens or carry a laptop/Alpha/??? with you?
Do you wake up at 4am, unable to sleep, and make the most of that time by writing (and if you do, you're a mutant like my boyfriend...)?
Do you scribble notes on breaks or lunch hours if you, like me, have a day job?
Do you throw your hands up in despair, curl into a fetal ball and whimper a lot?
