Back to School!

It's September again! Where did that summer go?

I have a great classroom full of kids this year, and I'm glad to be back at it (Yes, I LOVE my job!), but...

Now I'm back to the struggle of finding the time to write, to work on the dreaded query, to do agent research, to send out those queries, to read the agent blogs, to twitter, to visit blogs of friends, to blog myself. And to breathe. Oh, yeah, I have a family and house to take care of too. Did someone say sleep? Not a chance :)

I tend to check out blogs while I'm getting supper ready, or just after, and then focus on the writing much later on in the evening. Too much multi-tasking required earlier!

What about you? When do you squeeze in the time? What's the best time of day for you to find your focus?


  1. I'm lucky. I get to write full-time. After working full-time most of my adult life (mainly in the field of marketing), I truly treasure my writing time! Love your new blog. I'll be following you now. Stop by my place if you get the chance. We both write mysteries - how cool is that???

  2. You're so lucky, Debra! Thanks - I'm glad you like visiting - I'll check out your site. So glad to meet another mystery writer!
