So now the house will be quiet from 9 till 3, and I should have oodles of time for writing in peace. The funny thing is, most of my published books were written while I still had one or more children at home, or during school holidays. I think this is because I learned to make the most of the opportunities that I did get to write. I wrote the two stories which make up Doggy Duo sitting at the kitchen table, writing in longhand while I drank my afternoon coffee and the kids buzzed around. Pemberthy and Floatingest were both written while I had two Murphlets still at home. Again, I snatched moments while they were playing, or waited until they were asleep.
So, if you have kids at home, or work fulltime, or have another barrier in the way of finding quality writing time, don’t despair. You can make the time, you can find the time, you can even steal the time (who needs an ironed pillowcase anyway?). If you are determined to write, you’ll do so.
Good luck with it.
