With a sick one at home today, I thought I’d bring up something I’ve seen bounced around the blogosphere these last few weeks. How do you find time to write in the midst of parenting?
While my two were at home (and I had stepped away from teaching the first time), I’d aim for three writing sessions a week. Anything extra was icing on the cake.
I didn’t worry about word count or even time. Sometimes those sessions would last ten minutes. Other times I could get a few hours in, especially during the years I had a babysitter for a weekly writing date. These sessions were doable for me during a life-phase when my time was often not my own.
How do you manage writing while mothering?
