Summer Schedule

I've been quite lax about blogging in recent weeks as the school year wound down.  Between driving for field trips, finishing the Spring sports season and wrapping up my school/work year obligations, it was a bit of a hairy time.

I've always dreaded the start of summer in terms of what it meant for my writing time fearing there would be no time with chauffering kids around and having them underfoot each day.  I believe this summer will be different.  The school year was full of various work obligations, school functions and sporting practices and events.  Summer seems to be bringing more peace, during the days at least as most softball and baseball is in the evening.  I've found myself sitting outside on my front deck watching my kids shoot hoops or play catch while working on a picture book or catching up on market research reading. 

I do need to set some sort of schedule to accomplish what I'd like to complete this summer with some degree of consistency but feel this summer, more than any other, is going to be ripe with productivity.

So, I am curious...what works for your summer schedule?  How do you modify your goals and objectives during the summer months?  I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas if you are willing to share.


  1. I have a 16 year old who is a homebody, except for when she is working on a play. Either way is a win win for my writing time. I need quiet time to write, so if she is at the theater for 8-10 hours a day I have plenty of time to write, workout and take care of our home. She also likes to write, so she might be in our home office writing and I'll be upstairs in my office. :)

    Have a lovely summer!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Sharon! It sounds like you have the perfect set up for productivity:-)

    Have a lovely summer as well.
