A story 5 weeks old

Max was 5 weeks old on Tuesday.

As of 5 weeks ago everything became about days, weeks and months.

How do you write when you have a baby? Well…here are a few tips.

Set your expectations-this is a great time to take a break from writing and focus on other things if you do what I do which is write for 4 hours a day. That won’t be possible again for a while but you can still fit some writing in. For the first two weeks-you likely won’t get to do anything. You want to be there for your baby and he’s really all that matters. Priorities from now on will always be different.

200 words a day. 7 days a week.

1,400 words a week.

A 1st draft of 70,000 words is established in just under a year. I’m not saying this how long it will take but you will get more time to yourself in the future. So this is me getting started.
