How To Work On Writing When You Can’t Actually Write. 

This post is going to be short for several reasons. It’s late, I have a migraine, I’m moving, and pitching in a for a huge celebration for my husband who is finally finishing up his training to fly fighter jets. 


It’s a lot, and even though I’d like to have the time to write, it simply isn’t feasible right now. 

What do you do in a situation like that?

I tend to do two things: I let things germinate on back burner for a while. Think a long simmering pasta sauce. I deliberately think of part of my story that I’d like to progress, and while I’m boxing up the closet I can muddle through any ideas I might have. 

It’s not a fail safe system, but it stops me from feeling guilty about not having the time to put pen to paper. 

I don’t always think “it’s the thought that counts”, but when I’m elbow deep in packing paper it sure does help 😉
