So, YESTERDAY was the day I was going to get back on track with my novel. But I woke up with a terrible cough, there was the fiasco with the strawberry shortcakes, and it was all I could do to get the holiday meal on the table by 4. By the time it was all over, I was too tired to do anything but blog about the day, take my allergy meds, and pass out.
Unfortunately, TODAY was more of the same, except I had 14 piano lessons to teach and piles of laundry to do on top of cooking dinner. Also, I have an extra teenager staying with us for a while - parents do the strangest things - and the cough is lingering; I am terrified I am on the verge of another bout with bronchitis. To make matters worse, my grass is several inches high and my lawn mower won't start. I don't know how to fix it and I have no money to throw at the problem.
I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR ANY OF THIS. I HAVE A NOVEL TO REVISE.
When I am a New York Times Best Selling Author, I will *PAY* somebody to do my laundry, clean my house, paint my rooms, and mow my lawn. But how do I manage in the meantime?
How do *YOU* do it? How do you juggle children/housework/laundry/full-time jobs with writing? I don't happen to have a significant other, but I might someday, so if you do, how does that primary relationship figure into the equation?
Inquiring minds want to know.
