1. My mother-in-law comes and cleans and cleans and cleans some more AND entertains my children. Mmm hmm. Some people might have lousy mother-in-laws. I am not one of those people. My mother-in-law is an angel.
2. I get a lot of couch snuggle time with the kids.
3. I have plenty of time to read.
4.I get to attend the AWESOME WriteOnCon from the comfort of my own home.
5. I can write as much as I want.
It sounds pretty idyllic, huh? There have been some crumby days lately, I'm not going to lie, but I've had a couple of great ones too.
Last week I had a day where the kids played sweetly with each other for two hours and I was able to WRITE. It was one of those days when the words just flowed. It was one of those days when I sat down at the computer and was immediately immersed in the story and in sync with the characters. One of those days when I LOVED the story and knew it could be great. I've only had a handful of days like that since I started writing. Usually I have to work for my words, typing them out, even when I don't feel like writing. But I guess it's worth working through those days to have a magic day every once and a while.
Have you had days like this? I wonder if the people who can write books in a few months (or weeks) have days like this all the time. If you have magic days all the time, I need your secret to success!
