Tension tightened Sebastian’s back and shoulders. It wasn’t the request that got to him. It was the sound of her voice, the anxious need. “Better yet, why don’t you ditch work? Come with me now. I can take you somewhere that might just be exactly what you need—” Without warning, Sebastian’s jaw locked up, his every muscle froze, and he couldn’t move. What the f---in’ hell is going on? his inner voice yelled, and his eyes darted left and right.
Sebastian?” Kyra inquired. “You were saying?”
He couldn’t respond. Couldn’t will his mouth to work or voice to answer. But his gaze narrowed in on the culprit, standing not-so-inconspicuously by the creamer station. Tall, gray suit with hat pulled down to shield his facial features, and a cheesy name tag tacked to his chest, probably his father’s lame idea. All part of the everyone-get-to-know-Sebastian movement. Except, all the names were fake. So what was the point? The Reaper across the room was no more named Mr. Johnson than his father was Mr. Smith.
Damn Reapers. Now Sebastian had a tail because his father didn’t trust him on his own. His gaze shifted to Kyra.
Sebastian?” Kyra’s eyes bored into him, large and wide.

My dream is to write something, even if it is for me, I have 2 kids and I work full time outside and in the house too, what are your tips for working mother on writing even one chapter of a book. To be honest I have started 3 different stories but never kept writing. 

One of the hardest parts about writing is following the process through until the story is finished. It’s easy to get distracted, even derailed by life. Kids and chores, they trip me up daily. I know I’m not alone. We’ve all been there at one point or another. I suggest the following to help keep you on track:

1. Schedule it
The key to combat daily interference is to create a writing schedule. Set aside designated time where that is all you do – write. If thirty minutes is all you can afford, then make it thirty minutes. But it’s highly recommended that you try to fit in at least one hour a day.

2. Plot your project
In the beginning, I recommend choosing one project, map it out, and see it through until the end. If you find yourself wandering to other stories, jot down the high points of the new story in a journal for you to attack at a later date, then return to the project at hand. Plot the major events of your piece and when you get stuck on a chapter, skip forward to another scene until you’re ready to return to the chapter that’s giving you issues.

3. Be willing to sacrifice
Very few of the big names you’re familiar with in literature started out a success right out the gate. They struggled, did their time ― as you and I are now. They will tell you what I am going to say to you now, as a working mother who wants to successfully finish a book or first draft, you’re going to have to let the laundry and dishes pile up every now and then. Sleep hours may need to be sacrificed. Stay up an hour after the kids go down to write, or get up an hour earlier. Forgo the downtime in front of the television or social media time on your computer. If time is tight, then prioritizing is a must. The more you keep a tight writing regiment, the easier it will become to follow through. On the weekend, ask the spouse to watch the kids for an hour or two, then step out and set up shop at your local Starbuck. Don’t bother logging into their free Wi-Fi, simply write.

4. Give yourself permission
I often find myself jealous of the mothers who have perfect homes. Ninety-seven percent of the time mine looks like a demilitarized zone. But I know, in my gut, if I had a sparkling home, I wouldn’t be making any forward progress on my work. So, in a life that is crazy with demands from family, jobs, and household chores, it comes down to giving yourself permission to let some things go and live in a less than perfect environment. Don’t worry about what your neighbors or friends are doing. Think about you and where you want to be, then make the choices and sacrifices to get yourself there. That’s what I do every day. Sacrifices today beats regrets filled with what-ifs years later.

I hope some of what I’ve shared has helped, if only in a small way. Thanks so much for having me here! It’s been an honor and a pleasure.
