I adore my kid. I do. But there are 3 more weeks of summer vacation left and I've written a total of about 500 words the entire summer -- and 450 of them were last night b/c I realized in a blind panic that I've set a publication date of October for TRUTHS WE TELL. Can you say "yikes"? I can...as well as some words that I shouldn't say on the interwebz.
So, my question is -- what strategies do you use to write while your kid is home, short of marathoning Harry Potter films? Presumably you've been doing this all summer, so I'm hoping someone has some good suggestions to get me through the next few weeks.
