The kids are out of school and enjoying their summer break. I remember how much I loved summer when I was a kid, so I am glad to see that they seem to as well. However, while they are enjoying their summer, I am enjoying writing for my clients.
During the summer, a freelance writer, who also happens to be a parent, has to make some changes to her schedule. You don’t want the kids to be cooped up in the house doing nothing but watching TV and playing video games, but you also don’t want to disappoint your clients. Therefore, you gotta do what you gotta do.
The kids know that there will be times where I will have a Do-Not-Disturb sign on my door, so they have to find something to entertain them quietly while I work away. With time management, teaching, and organization, kids and writing can co-exist together.
