Freedom

The child is now in daycare. Can I get a 'woo-woo'? :D

This means Tuesday thru Friday, I can sit my butt down without interruption and write. ~sigh~ Just write. No laundry. No cleaning. No running errands. No school this semester. I'm not paying daycare to do those things. I'm paying it to work.

And any of you who have felt the excruciating sting of a daycare bill will understand me when I say: I am now writing books to put my kid through daycare. Oy. However, it's my hope that one day the ends will justify the means.

Which means I need to write. So, back to work!

Glad to hear it. Do you have any insight on finding time to write while being a stay at home mom (I think I read earlier that this is what you've been doing)? I'd love some insight on that - maybe you could do an entry on it? Pretty please?

The best part of the transition from writing-whenever-no-one's-crying-or-using-your-butt-as-a-kleenex-or-endangering-their-life-on-top-of-the-christmas-tree to writing during daycare is that you suddenly realize just how focused you actually are. This has been the first year that I've had serious daytime hours (four hours, four days a week) and my productivity is through the roof. Why? Because for the last nine years, I've only been able to write for tiny bursts whenever I got the time. It forces a person to learn to employ a singularity of purpose and a deafness to other distractions - all useful when you finally have some uninterrupted time.
