So, let’s say that you’ve prepared for a summer of childcare and family time. For the one edit you’re expecting, you’ve booked a week of writing time. That is, you’ve booked your kids for a week of gymnastics camp.
Well, you would have ignored the first rule of writing time: it disappears just when you need it most.
That’s right, your son will throw up through a good portion of his allotted camp days, and you will be less than successful in attempting to write amidst the mix of whining and cartoon TV.
At the end of the week, you will find that you are only halfway through your editing changes, and you have somehow agreed to prepare a proposal for a new non-fiction book, in your spare time.
Once you’ve lost the rest of your marbles, you will begin writing only in second person point-of-view.
