Writing Around the Day Job

Now that back-to-school has arrived, the romance writing community goes through a sort of “New Year’s Resolution” period….the kids are back in school, so the writing can begin again!!!  Whether you have children, a day job, a demanding family/personal need or any other conceivable thing in this crazy ride called life, chances are you’re familiar with all those things that can distract us from the keyboard.

For today’s post, I wanted to focus on “The Day Job.”

Summertime Management for Writing Moms

It’s that time of the year again, when kids are out of school, the days are long and warm, and afternoons by the pool are the norm. I wish!!! In actuality, the kids are out of school, the fighting has commenced, and I’m struggling to write and work with two children underfoot. Afternoons by the pool are few and far between, and I find myself wishing I had the money to hire a nanny.
