On a good day, when I have a moment to myself, this is how the act of writing feels:
The everyday reality of my writing life, as home-dad to young kids, is really more like this:
It’s a wonder I get anything done. Thank goodness for days like today when they are all safely tucked up at school/nursery. Better get back to it. It’ll be 3.30pm soon enough.

It’s so true. I can’t get anything done when the kids are awake, because they’re always clamoring for me (the younger two, anyway). Thank God for naptime! It’s not just for kids anymore. 😀
If it wasn’t for naptime and nursery I simply would not have managed to complete a collections worth of short stories. Hope you are managing to get some writing done despite the kids.
Naptime is a blessing. 🙂
