Summer is here and my time feels so limited. As I am sure everyone is experiencing.
I honestly don't know how some people find time to write with kids, jobs, meetings, family outings, "I have to go here" kid things, and so forth and so on. It seems since summer started that my time disappears into whiffs of smoke.
Now that Perfection is finished, edited, and I really hope shining, I'm getting ready to start the second book in the series (no title as of yet) on Monday. But I have to go there and do this and that, my distractions of blogs and trying to keep up with agent and publishing news, I'm doing another beta read (which is something I really love doing)--oh...not to mention the fact my computer is in the living room and people come and flip on the television regardless of the crazy lady sitting in front of the computer clacking away on the keyboard--so I am forced to really have to set aside time to write.
I wish I could just pop up first thing in the morning all bright-eyed and bushy-tail (while everyone else is snoozing), and start typing, but unfortunately the gears in my head are barely moving. I tried it, can't do it. All I want to do is zombie-out while my neurons kick start into firing.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun for my fellow writers and blog readers to tell me what they do to schedule their time to include everyday distractions, family, work, exercise, chores, taxi driving, and whatever interferes with what you really want to do (which is write).
Maybe help can be found within the comments.
