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.

Afternoons by the pool are few and far between, and I find myself wishing I had the money to hire a nanny.
