Let your child "work" too. Give your child a small pad of paper and a pencil, then let her go wild. Even if your child can't really write yet, she will still get satisfaction out of being like mommy or daddy.

Take regular play breaks. Give your tot, and your own mind, a break and play your child's favorite game for a few minutes every couple of hours.

Work Around Your Child's Schedule

Work at Home, Away from Home

Take your child to places where they can safely play and you can have WiFi access, like McDonald's. Your child can get plenty of exercise and socialization and you can get a frothy drink to sip while you work. This was one of my biggest writing secrets when my kids were little.

Here’s everything you need to make your writing business successful.
