My youngest child is now in preschool 3 days a week for 2.5 hours.  I had decided that when he started preschool that time was my precious writing time.

He has been to school twice now and I have written both days.  I didn't get as much done on the first day as I thought.  I vowed to do better the next time he went.
I dropped him off.  I came home.  I sat and I wrote CRAP!  I was so discouraged.  I posted on Facebook and Twitter that I was suffering from writer's block.  I had two friends give encouraging comments on my post.  So I gritted my teeth and wrote.

I doubt I'll keep a lot of what I wrote today but I did figure out a major plot point and got my story moving again and regained some excitement.

What have you done to get through those tough writing times?

  1. I'm terrible - to get through it, I just don't write sometimes. I know...awful. I go through phases - but, the thing to keep in mind is that we do have talent!! And it will come ~ :)
