So lately, I've tried to do it right after work, while my wife works and the kids stay with her, since she runs a daycare out of the house. This might sound great, and it usually is, but it interferes with my writing a lot because once I get home, my kids want my attention and I just want to write because it relaxes me and gets me in a better frame of mind to face the evening, of dinner, playing games, hanging out with the family, and me and wife time.
So I'm asking for help. Should I go back to my old way and just slog my way through my writing before bed and after the kids are asleep, or continue to pop my headphones on my ears to drown them out right after work? What would you choose if those were your two options?
