I've been experiencing technical difficulties today, and I haven't been able to post all day. So I apologize for the lateness and I'll make this short and snappy.
My kids have less than two weeks left of school!
Now I work outside the home all day while they're at school, so their school time never could be my writing time. Summer means more free time for me. No more homework, no more Scout meetings, no more saxophone lessons, no more baseball practice or choir concerts or packing lunches.
Of course, it also means good luck getting the kids in bed before 10 p.m. So I'll have to shift my writing schedule. Instead of writing after they go to bed, my new plan is to kick them out of the house after dinner and write until the mosquitoes drive them indoors.
Have you planned out your summer writing time? Does it change for you--or do you live in one of those states where school ended weeks ago and the kids are already in your hair during your writing time?
Whatever your plan is, I hope you dare to come up with one. If you know when your writing time is supposed to be, I think you'll have a much better chance of showing up at the keyboard regularly. So what's your summer schedule?
