Hey folks, how is life? I’m still not getting a lot of sleep and days are exhaustingly filled with playdoh (it’s hard to explain) so I have very little time to plan and make elaborate cork boards so I propose…
The Busy Mummas Writing Method (aka Driving With the Low Beams On)
Set aside a small slice of time in your life. Let it be once a week in the morning if you can negotiate it, or once a night if bb decides to drop off early.
Don’t put a lot of pressure on yourself.
Just write slowly and as fast as your addled mind can take it. You might not be able to see the end of the story or even the major plot reveal or even where your story is even heading… but it is one foot in front of the other. Remember, even if you just have the low beam on, you can still drive very slowly in the pitch dark night.
Don’t run over any Goths.
If you have to stop sometimes, it’s okay.
If you stop and stare at the darkness, something might happen to light up the sky and suddenly the picture makes sense.
But it’s doable.
And sometimes it’s enough to get you by.
See you at the end of the road 😉
