May #IWSG: Mayday!

 



                                        Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.
 
The awesome co-hosts for the May 1 posting of the IWSG are Victoria Marie Lees, Kim Lajevardi, Nancy Gideon, and Cathrina Constantine!

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

Remember, the question is optional
May 1 question - How do you deal with distractions when you are writing? Do they derail you?
 


When the house empties itself of people and pets, I race to my laptop and dive into my work. The sweet sound of nothing accompanies my writing sprints. And as far as distractions go, after raising two boys and currently living with a teenage girl, distractions abound. It's a part of life. If May is anything like April, it will speed by faster than a lightning strike. I'm anticipating a few distress calls with my upcoming schedule. Hang in there!

  3. I'm glad you're able to use that quiet time well. I usually just collapsed onto the couch when everyone was finally off doing the daily routine. Thanks for posting today!

  4. That's great that you get some quiet time to write when everyone's out of the house. And focusing on your kids is important too. They grow up so quickly and start their own busy lives too soon. Enjoy the time you have with them living with you.

  6. It's nice that you do get the house to yourself on occasion. I'm sure that was harder when the kiddos were younger.
