Write While the Pasta Cooks

Today I had a great conversation with a younger writer who wants to finish a manuscript while also maintaining a full-time job and raising a family with young children. We laugh about writing in the nooks and crannies of the day like while the pasta cooks on the stove. I think about writing in between laundry loads, while the coffee brews, while the dishes dry, while waiting in line at the grocery store and typing thoughts into the notes of my phone, while sitting in dentist office waiting rooms, airports, before classes begin, in the car pool line, and even while lying in the bed in the morning.

It’s true that sometimes the writing happens in the middle of everything else.
