Drafting while your kids are on Christmas break is not easy.
I try to sneak away for a bit here and there, but let’s be honest, the holidays are about family and so writing time has to be compromised.
For me, when I need a few hours to get down some words, I tell the kids to not bother me unless someone is bleeding or choking (mine are old enough to do this) and I make sure it’s after a meal time. THEN… are you ready for some real talk?
I lock the door to my room and put my music on really loud.
So far, no one has died or suffocated or choked as a result of me writing for a few hours.
I call that a win.
Merry Christmas everyone!!
