Crazy stuff

This week has been a disaster as far as writing goes. I've managed about an hour, and that was just revising an not working on my WIP. I hate it when life gets in the way of my writing! But I guess it's unavoidable. At the end of the day, if my family is going to eat, I need to work the day job and do it as well as possible. And sometimes that means bringing work home at night. And that means I get no writing done.

It's worse when I have real momentum happening and getting dragged away from my book hurts. At least I'm not there yet with Sour Plum. I'm still finding my way into it. But I do worry that a few days (a week almost) away from it, will make it even harder to start again.

How do you cope when your writing routine is interrupted?


  1. It's the worst when you can't stop thinking about writing and wanting to write, but you just don't have the time. :/ Generally, when that happens, I amble through life preoccupied until I can find time to write again. :)

    1. Sounds like a good plan. I just wish I had time to be pre-occupied! Everything else is taking up way too much of my brain space this week.
