So this week is spring break for us. This means lots of lying around for the kids and a lot more work for mom. It is what makes me think "Now am I really sure I can't wait for summer?"
That also means that I don't do a whole lot of writing. Even as I type two little boys are demanding that I find every little thing on "Lego Star Wars" for the xBox as exciting as they do.
So here is my question for you other writers with children. When these school holidays come around, especially summer vacation, how do you deal with the demands of children and writing? How do you parcel out your time for family and writing? What do you do to keep that time sacred? Or do you just cram writing into every spare second that crosses your path? And if that's what you do, how do you keep focus from moment to spare moment? I want to be prepared this summer before summer even arrives.
