As you may have noticed, I made the decision to take the summer off. My kids started school today (first and fourth grade), and I’m planning to use the time to get back to writing. I’d like to devote time each day they’re at school towards some form of working on my craft. If I can effectively carve out time to work on my fiction, write a newspaper or magazine article, take on another nonfiction book, write a book review, do some editing, or create a blog post, then hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have established a routine where writing is an integral part of every week.
excellent idea, lisa. i am backing off the blog for a while. just feeling like one more thing i ‘have to’ do. once my kids get back to school, i will be able to focus more on the manuscript, too.
