Adventures of a Full-Time Author – Day 3

My husband is distracting.

Yep, I said it. If he reads this, which I doubt, he’ll admit my words are true.

Why is he so distracting? Many reasons, but the one sitting at the top of the list right now is this… we’ve NEVER had the same days off.

You see, with both of us working in the restaurant industry, the chances of us having a full day off together, no kid, no appointments and such, is very rare. He works Thursday through Monday and my days off were usually Sundays and Thursday.

So, yesterday was spent hanging out with him. Doing stupid shit around the house. Planning how we’re going to make this work (financially). All the little things.

Oh, and doing the one thing we can do anywhere in our house when no one else is home.

How did that turn out?

We both ended up with random leg cramps and it still feels like I have a charlie horse in my left calf today. IT WAS WORTH IT.

So, day three is here and I’ve written a total of two blog posts (including this one), 500 words in my current WIP (no I’m not missing a zero sadly), and promoted A Secret Life being on sale for 99 cents this week and the cover reveal for the Imperfect Love Duet.

Basically… I’m writing less than when I was working full time. Of course. Because this transition couldn’t be easy, could it? Which is fine. I like a good challenge. I’ll rewrite the schedule I thought I was going to be able to stick to. AGAIN. I’ll focus on the days where I’m home alone and able to crank out the words. I’ll use my Dragon software to maximize my effort and hit crazy goals every day.

When I’m alone.

With no distractions.

And my living room doesn’t smell like sex. (TMI? Sorry.)

I’m sure tomorrow will bring a new challenge. My muse will stop talking to me or my computer will decide to update for an unusual amount of time. Something will attempt to get in the way of hitting 5k or 7k. I’ll push through and make it happen somehow. Until then, I’m going to enjoy the time I have with my husband because it rare and precious and even though I know we’ll get to do this again next week, should the good Lord allow it, it’s still new and fun and I plan to take advantage of every second we have together.
