The Whiney Writer

I'm moving this week. We're getting out of our condo and moving in with family until we can find a house. At the same time I'm starting a new position at work.

And it's hell on my writing productivity.

I'm in the midst of a major revision and I'm lucky if I can get one chapter done a night. And no reading done at all.

I hate these moments. They weigh on me. My mind is always turning over stories in my head, figuring out plot twists, working out kinks in the storyline. Yet, I don't have a moment to write them down.

So, I'm sorry for the overly brief blog post, but I need a pick me up. When life gets the best of you, what do you do to keep your writing productivity up?

Since I'm being brief this week, enjoy Pearl Jam's new song:

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but when life intervenes to curtail my writing, I grab what little time I have and do what I can. There's no benefit to stressing over it, and trying to squeeze in too much may lead to less than optimal results. Keep the mind working, make notes as you can, and be ready to hit the ground running when events permit.

Good luck.
