Gloria Steinem had the foresight to say, “I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.”
But, I say, “Marriage and a career – that’s nothing, try adding kids into the equation.”
And any mother, who works and writes, has to be pretty amazing.
Pru, Piper, and Phoebe can’t even compete with most modern-day Moms.
And, unfortunately, Dads are rarely divine. So what’s a writing woman to do, to find the time to devote to her craft?
Here is my number one hint:
1) Get a laptop computer.
I have written more words with my laptop in one year than I ever wrote with a desktop computer. It’s simple. I take it with me - everywhere: outside, on vacations, out to the front room so I can go “watch” t.v. with the family, while I write.
This one device has made ALL the difference for me. You can look at a few options that start out at about $499.00 here.
