So, I'm supposed to be writing but I'm having a hard time finding time. Does anyone else have this problem? Baby up from 11:30 pm to 2:00 am last night. We, my husband and I, get up at 5:30 am. My husband leaves for work at 6:45 am which is supposed to start my writing time. Baby up at 7:00 am wanting breakfast, but not feeling well.

Tuesdays and Thursdays the Little Man goes to Play School for four hours, which is writing time. Not today. Today he went to the doctor only to discover his crankiness was due to an ear infection. The doctor's visit (that took 2 hours) was followed by a trip to the pharmacy (half an hour) for antibiotic and the grocery store (45 minutes) for sick baby foods.

Finally it was nap time (possible writing time) but was struck with a migraine. I ended up napping with the Little Man until my husband got home. Then it's cooking dinner, eating dinner, cooking a second dinner for the Little Man who did not like the first dinner, cleaning up after dinner.

So, what happens now that it is between dinner time and bedtime? Writer's block! So, I'm throwing this out there to anyone else who has challenges (or a two-year-old) during the day that delay your writing time and how do you overcome your writer's block?


  1. Relaaax. (I'm saying that in a soothing, new age voice) Days like this happen. The more you try, the more pressure you place on your time- and if there's one thing Creativity doesn't like, it's pressure. Sometimes, it just doesn't happen like you hope it will.

    Tomorrow (today) is another day. You're doing all the right things, but just accept some days you just get less done than others. Any time you spend writing, editing, researching, marketing, etc. is taking you closer to your goal. If you have writer's block, relax, there's always something that useful to do even if you can't manifest words onto paper.

    Good luck today! <3

  2. Thanks Amanda! You are the best! Thanks for the vote of confidence and encouragement!
