Hi, No-Fluffers.

Welcome to my blog. On my site you’ll learn how to build a successful writing career. If you want me to write for you, you can find information about that, too.

Writing, Summer and Kids

One of My Minion's- Umm- Children, In My Office

Time for the annual quandary: How do you run a successful freelance writing business while the kids are on summer break? Here are some things to try:

  • Work after the kids are asleep. This also has the added bonus of my office/sun room being nice and cool.
  • Sending the kids to vacation bible school. This is only for a few hours a day and only lasts for a week, but I'll take what I can get!
  • Ship them to family members every now and then. My girls have already been to my mom's for the weekend twice.
  • Work while the kids are completing their daily chores. They'll be occupied and won't be saying "Hey, Mom!" every five seconds. (They're doing chores right now, in fact.)
