It can be very frustrating when life literally gets in the way of writing. You give yourself goals, get yourself excited about writing but just can't get to it, sometimes for days at a time because there's something else going on in your life that takes all your physical and/or emotional energy. I find myself going through this right now. Even if I find a little time to sit down in front of the computer and write, my head is just not in it. My head and my emotions are entirely on a different project which, at the moment anyway, seems so much more important for my life that there is no question of what the priorities are. But meanwhile, I fully understand that the longer I don't go back into the writing mode, the harder it will be to go back to it.
How do you handle the problem of "life getting in the way of writing"?
