Ghost Writers – Summer Is Almost Here

by Amanda J Evans on April 27, 2010

It is almost the start of May and for work at home ghost writers who have children this means only one thing, school holidays.  School holidays affect all parents but for those of us who work from home it means total disruption.  Your work schedule really does go out the window and now is the time to start planning.

There are two main options:

1. Schedule your ghost writing work for early in the morning

2. Schedule your ghost writing work for late at night

I have two children aged 3 and 6.  My daughter Emma is in school 5 days a week until 2pm.  My son Conor on the other hand only attends Montessori three mornings a week from 9.30am to 12.30pm.  My work schedule revolves around school.  I have three mornings that are dedicated to client work.  This gives me 2 hours of full on work every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Once the end of June hits I won’t have this dedicated time and this is why I need to start planning my new work schedule now.
