This past week sucked for my writing. I was on a writing high last week partially because I was rewriting what I had already written and knew how things were going to go. Then this week, I hit the two week slump. I haven't written a word on my story this whole past week.
Last week I wrote every night before I went to bed, or while I was supposed to be making dinner (thank you hubby!). This week I have not had the energy. Somehow I am going to bed later this week than I was last week and I'm not even sure what I'm doing that's keeping me up so late.
I know part of it is laundry. We use cloth diapers so I usually throw diapers in the wash every three to five days depending on how lazy I feel or how busy I think I am. That doesn't take a whole lot of time except when I have to stuff them with the absorbent inserts (they are pocket diapers. If anyone wants to know what those are, feel free to google it. They aren't your grandma's diapers). Stuffing them takes about a half hour or 45 minutes.
So twice a week that takes up time. I should be working on my story while the laundry is going, but that's family time usually.
During the day I babysit my cousins baby girl who is four months older than my little boy and they NEVER take naps at the same time. So I don't get any writing done during the day. As I sit here writing this quick blog post the babies are tearing apart the kitchen which I'll have to put back together before my cousin's in-laws arrive because they are judgy.
So does anyone have any magical suggestions on when I can get some writing done for this next week? I have to say I'm not a morning person so any writing I would do then would not be productive. I think I'm just going to have to stay up late.
I hope y'all get more done on your masterpieces than I do. Keep on creating,
