With two small kids at home, one who I homeschool and another who demands my attention every moment of the day, it's hard to find time to write. It is one of the main reasons why I didn't start until after I turned 30 (even though it has been my dream since I was a freshman in high school). This has been my biggest lesson as a writer - forcing myself to find the time. Even when uninspired, I have to write.
This has been me all day.
I am literally forcing out the words. They aren't innovated or even good. A few times today, I had to ask my husband "what am I trying to say here" because I cannot even think clearly. BUT I have a 1,000 word daily writing goal and it needs to be met.
Today's mantra: you can fix this during copy edits.
So with that thought, I slug back to my Word document and force out another 250 words on the second installment of The Caelian Cycle so I can hang out with my family and then catch up on Game of Thrones. Seriously, we're still in season 2. I know. We are ashamed.
