Writing lags

So, one thing I am learning as a writer is that sometimes you just can't write. I had set myself a goal to write, at least a little, every day. Some days however, it's just impossible.

First, I have three kids, and they require a lot of attention when they are home. Raising a family is a full time job and my primary one.

Then tack on that the fact it is cold and flu season...  I've tried writing while I am really sick, doesn't work. No matter how hard I try, I just can't sit down and write when my head feels like it is going to explode.

So, I have to suck it up and deal with the fact I just can't write every day and if it happens I can't beat myself up over it. I am a writer yes, but a writer is not all I am.
