nap time

So this is like my one shot at writing today... because it's nap time.  So why am I blogging instead of working on my wip??

Because I find it extremely hard to concentrate while rocking my baby with my foot (because the swing ran out of batteries) and listening to my toddler sing songs at the top of her lungs from her bedroom.  I've already put big girl down for a nap twice.  I'm about to pull my hair out.

I need to just start working on my wip, but I know once I get into the groove someone will need something.


Okay, wish me luck, here goes nothing.

When I have five seconds...

This is what I've been up to...

All day.  Every day.  Eat. Poop. Sleep. Play. Dishes. Crap were out of laundry.  AGAIN.  All I can say about this two kid thing is if I didn't need to sleep (EVER) I'd totally have it under control.

And when I have five seconds...I've been a vegetable.  I don't usually watch tv...I mean besides Dora or Sesame  Street in the morning.  That's how I have time to write.  

But (sad day)  I started watching TV again.  Therefore this is the first thing I've written in a while.

There is definitely something to be said about the mind numbing comfort of television...but I can't let this be a habit.  Because I need to write.  I just need to.  I started writing because of kiddo number one, but I didn't really get going until she started taking two solid naps a day.  I don't know if I can last that long without my daily therapy.

So here is my new goal, because I had a writing teacher tell me she did this...

She wrote in her closet for fifteen minutes a day.  Yes, I said closet.  Not that I'm going to go to the closet because it would be too much of a pain to set up in there... but the point is she locked herself away (from the kids) for the few minutes she had and wrote.

So I'm going to write 15 minutes... and maybe sometimes just 5 or 10 if that's all I can do, but I have to do it.
And hopefully that MG word count hanging out over there will slowly increase until someday I'm done.
