Before I get into the meat of “how I do it all” I just wanted to add this to last week’s tip…
IF you really, really want to get a lot of writing done, get a dog to lays on your feet.
In January, we got a new puppy–1/2 Scottie, 1/2 Pomeranian. He was tiny and cute, but he is everything you hear about the challenges of terriers. He gets in the trash. He JUST got house broken within the last few weeks. He is very active. He runs down the street when I let him out, and he’s just starting to come back when I call.
Despite this, he has one good quality. Jake lays on my feet as I write, and I LOVE it. He’s warm (necessary for cold Montana days), cuddly, and it’s sooooo sweet. So, sometimes when I feel like getting up and doing anything else besides writing, I don’t. I work a little longer. I sit here and get stuff done, because Jake is so comfortable, and I can’t disrupt the pup!
