Summer is hard for parents. It may take time to ease back into writing life again when the kids go back to school. That’s okay. Give yourself the time you need.
It isn’t like I have a lot of it, you know? So when I sit down with my brain and mine it for words, that is time that I am not using to complete another task. That is critical time. And I know we all feel it.
Don’t let chaos be the excuse for why you can’t write or why you should get a different job or why you’re just not good enough. Let the chaos make you stronger, wiser, and resilient. Stop planning for chaos. Embrace it.
