Yesterday, I was in my favorite book store when I picked up a book on 100 ways writer’s can find time to write even though they live busy lifestyles.
Right now, as I type this post, I’m chuckling to myself as I remember the book from yesterday. I’ve been working on an article I plan on posting later today, but I had to run get my earplugs so I can hear myself think while I work. My 22-year-old daughter is in her room exercising and singing at the top of her lungs with the radio turned up, full blast. Within the last 20 minutes, the telephone rang, some one came to the door and one of our dogs vomited on the kitchen floor. The truth of the matter is, sometimes, it’s not easy to find time to write.
Fortunately, my multi tasking abilities are good, so I write a paragraph, run downstairs, attend to whatever crisis or mishap is present at that moment, and then run back upstairs and write another paragraph. Would you believe I’ve written while driving in the car too? I stopped every two blocks or so to jot down a few lines, but as any writer knows, when the ideas are coming, it’s like having a baby, there’s no stopping it and saying…….maybe later.
I guess I should have bought the book, it had some wonderful quotes for aspiring writer’s like myself. Oh well, my earplugs are working well now, thank heavens for that, so I must get back to work.
Be sure to look for my newest post later this afternoon. If I can dodge the kids and the hubby for a little while longer, I think I’ll be able to get it done.
Have a wonderful and peaceful Saturday everyone!
