Life Interruptions and Self Discipline

So its been on my mind that in order to write a book as an amateur, you have to find the right balance of accepting life interruptions that you do not want to miss and time management. 

I have put off writing for a few weeks as I visit family in England. This was preceded by moving my middle daughter into her college apartment in Virginia and getting my son set up for a one week Civil Air Patrol Encampment. The book persists in my head but the longer the stretch, the more obscure it becomes. 

I guess this may be a sign that I have to find the time between these periods of life to stay on top of ideas and thoughts and put some additional words to paper. 

So, I do not return to the states until September 2. I vow to work on my book at least one hour each day while I am here.

    Keep up the motivation! Even if you don’t get an hour a day in, a few hours a week will keep your mind as focused as possible in an outside environment. You might even be triggered to find some new things as you travel around that will inspire you and you’ll feel the urge to write then and there. Good luck!

    Carry around a notepad. All the greats use their ongoing lives to give them inspiration for their works. Whenever you come up with an idea, not it down then either develop or scrap it later.
