Trying to find time to write in the past 24 hours has been impossible. End of month, which for me is payday on the 15th, finds the cupboards bare, the accounts in need of payment and a house full of youngsters expecting mom to fork out for whatever they've been waiting for be it fast food, the latest thingymabob or just cold cash to line their Mr Price denims.
I asked Ms D to keep pushing me for my contribution and she obliged - lucky my Blackberry let's me email even if I'm lolling in bed trying to keep warm in what I think is a premature chill in the air. Do other writing moms have the same problem - stretching the hours that seem to have shrunk in the wash? For me, the day job also takes 12 hours every day, if you count drive time, not to mention the energy drain. I'd love to get tips from other writers with similar constraints. How do you find writing time?
