Just want to get things off my chest, basically. I am very close to finishing the first draft of my novel. What I don't have is a lot of time and certainly not a lot of time to myself, as a mother of young children. I get one day off every week (thanks hubby) and I usually spend a chunk of it at the library *trying* to write, but lately I have only been producing 300 words or so because I'm getting SO distracted by people talking loudly, people on mobile phones - a library is not a quiet place anymore. My only other free time is at night when the kids are asleep but I'm usually too tired to write, or if I'm honest, I don't want to do anything that resembles work, so I watch tv and read instead! My husband has just half jokingly suggested I book into the hotel down the road for a week to finish my book! We could possibly do this in a few weeks time, although I am concerned at leaving the kids with him and at the cost involved. Should I do this?
