A good friend of mine nudged me into evaluating my writing time. I realized I’m relying too much on Thursday and Fridays (when the twins are in preschool) to get ahead in my WIP. The problem with my system is that the girls often miss school because they’re sick or the school’s closed, which means no writing time for me. Sometimes, my husband watches the kids on the weekend so I can have some quality “me time”, but since it’s not every weekend, I can’t count on it.
Some people write in the evening or stay up late. I can’t do that. After a full day with four year old twins, I’m pretty beat. Today, I got up at five to write, but I know from experience, my body won’t tolerate more than a month of lack of sleep, especially with the tough workout schedule I put in at the gym.
So, here’s the plan. I’m going to cut back on my blogging time. *gasp* I know. I know. I’ll miss you, too, but it’s really for the best. You want to read my book some day, don’t you? Anyway, it won’t be too bad. My new blogging schedule is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (starting today). See? You’ll still have three days a week with me. Think you can handle it?
What kind of sacrifices have you made in order to get more writing done?
