Every day is a battle in the garden. A battle for survival, weather vs. plants, Dizzy and Jasper vs. plants, critters vs. plants.
For me, finding, or rather, making time to write is also a battle. When both my kids started back to school for the whole day this past fall, I took advantage. I’ve been writing almost every weekday for three to four hours a day. What a difference that kind of writing time does for my writing, rather than the tiny increments I attempted to steal, once in a while, with the kids at home. A regular routine of writing practice several hours a day, five days a week. Time to write, and think, time to rewrite, edit and submit my work, time to set goals and accomplish many of them.
Time for me to be a real writer.
