I am struggling with managing my time. I need to write, research, read, blog, and in between times I need to cook, clean, garden, take kids to and from school, and……….. Well, you get the picture.
I want to devise a schedule that works for me but has built in flexibility. Each week brings various scheduling blips… dental or doctor visits, plumbing issues, or one of my kids is sick. My least favorite is taking the cat to the vet. Ha! Ha! Like anyone of these blips could even be my favorite.
I know the minutia of everyday life is part of having a life. Yes, unforeseen events, disasters, and frankly sometimes-pleasant interruptions will interfere with my schedule. I get it. What I don’t get is how to rein myself in, how to discipline myself, and how to devise a schedule that will work for me.
As you can see, I am a work in progress and I can use some good sage advice.
What is a writer to do? Share your ideas and tell me what works for you.
I will think about all the suggestions that anyone offers. Laurel
