Early Mornings

Many times my only wish is the ability to sleep in. Having to be to work at 7 am doesn't offer that opportunity very often, not that Bobby would allow me to anyway. I am on vacation in Idaho and he decided that 5:30 was a good time to get up. I gave in and got up to feed him at 6:00. Needless to say, i was not completely thrilled to be up earlier than if I were getting up for work.
However, it turned out to be a wonderful opportunity. As he rolled around laughing and playing I decided to use the unexpected early hour to work on my manuscript. I was able to get a few more pages done and, surprisingly enough, my mind was clear and excited.
I get down on myself often for not working on my writing more. I decided this morning that it's not necessarily about the time I don't have, but taking advantage of the time I do have. I was able to take advantage of unexpected free time this morning and it felt wonderful. How do you make the most of what little free time I suspect most of you have? How do you make the most of your day?


  1. I'm terrible when it comes to making time for writing. I need to be in a creative mood to do it, and sometimes it won't hit when I do have time. Usually when I get free time, I'll waste it anyway, lol. Following and looking forward to more.

  2. I do a little writing at night when the house is quiet. If I didn't have that time I don't think I'd ever get anything written!

  3. I'm a new follower!!! Hooray! I love meeting new people *waves*

    As far as time goes I have to take all the little areas of gray I can snag to fit in writing time. I work a full 40 hour work week and when my husband rushes off to his 40 school week (after his WORK week) I have a ton of time to write, I know eventually that will change but for now it's utter bliss! Some weeks I have no free time, so a notebook is carried so that between breaks and lunch I can fit a few minutes in!
