This was supposed to go out two weeks ago, and for some reason has been sat in drafts instead. Which means you will be getting two newsletters from me this week.
So, I’m back (kind of). This newsletter, writing in general, household tasks and everything else are now performed in the brief snatches of time between feeds, nappy changes and attempting to get an (over)tired baby to sleep.
If anything, it has shown me how good I had it before in terms of free time. But it also caused me to really use those snatches of time to do the things that need doing. In the past week or so I’ve written a flash story and submitted it and I’m currently in the early stages of another short story for a separate submission call.
If the writing, or anything else, isn’t done in these brief flashes of time then it doesn’t get done at all.
