Wash the dishes BEFORE all the gunk dries on.
Time management is a lot like a litter box. If you don’t take care of it, you’ll wind up with crap everywhere. And it will stink. A lot.
“When writing a novel, that's pretty much entirely what life turns into: 'House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.’”
- Neil Gaiman
Don’t feel guilty for writing when your house is messy. Your house will always need cleaning, but your inspiration has a shelf life. That being said, don’t ignore the litter box. Seriously.
