This summer, I've felt off. The reason is very clear to me too. I don't have a schedule. With my husband and daughter home, I can't get my scheduled writing time each day. I'm sneaking time here and there, and sometimes it's only a half hour and it's not interrupted.
I miss my schedule. I miss knowing that I'll write at a specific time each day. Once the end of August rolls around, I'll have a new schedule. My daughter will be in school full-time. I've already figured out that I'll write all morning (Sounds glorious, doesn't it?), keep up with email and social networking during lunch (I always work through lunch for some reason), and edit in the afternoons. I'm looking forward to getting back to a schedule, and I think my writing will benefit from it too. I'm also excited that the evenings can just be family time since the rest of my day will be devoted to writing and editing.
How about you? Do you need a schedule to get work done or can you manage just finding time wherever possible?
