Weekend Warriors … NOT! (but maybe?)

In many ways, one would think that the weekends would be a great time to get some writing done.  Am I right?

In reality, I find that weekends are almost the worst as far as available time. Being a husband and a parent is my first priority at this stage of the game. As such, my time is pretty much never my own. So does that mean I don’t get any writing done on weekends? Usually I don’t, it’s true, but I have been thinking about ways to change that.  I have a few thoughts:

  1. Sprints – I use Write Or Die 2 to try and force myself to get words on a page in a set time frame.
  2. Headphones – Strap them on your head, put on some music, ignore the noise, and try and get a good 5-10 minute sprint done.
  3. Bathroom Breaks – Seriously no, but maybe it would work for someone. Mobile devices being as they are, perhaps a little writing could happen whilst one is … never mind. Use this method at your own discretion.
  4. Bed time – Grab 10 minutes just before bed. A laptop in bed works so long as your significant other doesn’t object to the tapping and the light.

Anyone else have suggestions?
