In these days of ever increasing demands on our time through the summer vacation time when kids are out of school, where do we find time to write? By the time I check email, answer the ones that need answering and check the day’s headlines, follow my favorite blogs and get some calls returned….it’s time to do some promo. Need to post on Twitter and Facebook, Goodreads and Linked In, and don’t go looking at others’ pages, if I can resist.
between are household responsibilities and friends, volunteer work and
bill-paying. And don’t forget the day job – in my case, editing. You
may have a longer commute than I do – from kitchen to office – but I
often work outside of “regular” 9 to 5 hours, finding myself at the
computer late at night.
Right now, we must include summer holidays and cottage get-togethers, shopping and travel as well and build them into our schedules. Don’t
even think about the down time of getting a cold or allergies!!
So, when does
your writing Muse strike in the midst of the hectic life? Mine has
been prodding at me a lot lately…and at times I can’t always indulge the
urge. For me, the best time to write is at night. Everyone else is
settled down and it’s “my” time. Add to the fact I’m a night owl and it
makes sense. How about you – when do you write?
