The last two days I’ve spent home with my parents, helping to watch my adorable one-year-old niece. We’ve spent gobs of time playing on the floor, visiting family, and snuggling.
After a full day yesterday, I sat down around 9 p.m. to try to write and got about 350 words in before my dad and mom sat down to play a board game. I put away my writing.
But, as I sat there, laughing and sharing that time with my parents – my son sleeping in the living room and my niece sleeping in her Pack n Play – I realized that writing is writing. And, if I’m too focused on writing, I may just miss out on the experience!
It’s hard to juggle it all! How do other writers do it? How do you find the time to write, but not miss out on experiences?
