Some days I have to wonder when I have time to write. Really, since it is a second career there are days that the world just conspires to keep me from writing. Today is one of those ... Or should I say it was a few of those days now. I started this blog a few days ago. Since then I have helped pack and move one of my children across the country to start out on his new adventures in work and college. I am also helping the other on move from one college house share to another. Not a happy move at that. So now you can see that writing has taken the back seat to all the rest of the worlds troubles. As the dust begins to settle, if only for a moment, I can get back to rambling on here. Writers do a lot of there work at home and in-between life's moments. How do you handle the unexpected interruption?

Okay... I've been really bad at this. What with everything going on, change of job, kids moving and a little vacationing on top of that I just really haven't gotten back to this. Not to say I haven't thought about this blog. Late at night I sometimes write a fab blog post in my head as I drift off to sleep only to forget the entire thing by morning. Now, I can't be the only one who does this? I have to admit to telling myself stories at the end of the day to go to sleep. Maybe this is a habit started long ago when my mother used to tell me stories, or cemented when I used to read stories to my two sons. However it happened, it happened. Some of my best story ideas been in the times between sleep and wake. The hard part if to remember it when you wake.
