Writer’s need schedules just like babies do

Live to Write - Write to Live

Writers, like newborns, thrive on a schedule.

I swear, one of the best things we ever did with our babies was when they got old enough for a nanny/babysitter to take care of them for a few hours so that I could get some work done, was to let the sitter (being British and of a certain age) put our children on a firm schedule.  (She also believed that all babies should have regular “sun baths” and she would strip them down to their diapers and place them in a puddle of sunshine.)

Because of Nana and her schedule, we had babies that routinely took hour long naps at 10 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.  This made our children rested and happy, and it made for some very pleased (and productive) parents.  (How do you think we had the energy and fortitude to have 6 kids?)
