Writing routines are important.
How do you do what you do?
In past years, I wrote off and on all-day with the focus of a schizophrenic guppy.
Thankfully age and full-time employment have tempered me.
Now most of my writing routine involves waiting until everyone in the house has gone to sleep.
I can also usually steal away a few hours a week over my lunch hour.
Like Dillard here, just hope your spouse is a writer too.
Good-grief: Writers at least have sympathy for other writers.
“I slept until noon, as did my husband, who was also writing. I wrote once in the afternoon, and once again after our early dinner and a walk. During those months, I subsisted on that dinner, coffee, Coke, chocolate milk, and Vantage cigarettes. I worked till midnight, one, or two. When I came home in the middle of the night I was tired; I longed for a tolerant giant, a person as big as a house, to hold me and rock me. In fact, an exhausted daydream—almost a hallucination—of being rocked and soothed sometimes forced itself upon me, and interrupted me even when I was talking or reading.”
