In an effort to preserve what remains of my sanity, I'm taking a week or so off from writing. And it's making me snaky.
I'm not used to having all this spare time. What do I do with those pockets of 30-50 minutes? After the kids go to bed, what am I supposed to do with the time before my bedtime? When I wake up at 5.30am and stumble to the computer, what do I do?
I'm trying to immerse myself in spring cleaning. I spent 2 hours on my younger son's bedroom yesterday. Today I attack the older one's.
But once I've done the cleaning, what do I do? You know what? I think I'll just have to go and start a new book.
Are you any good at relaxing? Any tips for someone chronically unable to do it?
