I write when I should be doing something else. My house is a mess, the kids unfed, and the garden overgrown. Chickens run wild in the yard. I write in the car or library when I’m waiting for a kid to finish an activity. One day I’m going to have a room of my own with a door, but until then I snatch a few minutes through out the day, and I write with a laptop at the foot of my bed, my trusty cat curled and sleeping at my side.
