I see so many articles going around writing groups about getting into a routine and write every day. The message from these articles is that this is how you are going to be a “real” writer.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the writer’s of these articles must lead quite a predicable life!
At the moment, I haven’t been able to write every day like I was planning to. For a while, I was beating myself up about it. I wasn’t having a lunch beak as I would be driving my kids to school. By the time evening came around, I was too tired to do anything. Getting up early to write also wasn’t the best plan for my general health and stress levels.
So I came up with a new routine.
