Try to balance out what you do on your writing with the other personal life activities. When I first started out, I kept a kitchen timer next to my desk so that I would adhere to a schedule. What it really did for me was to keep me from straying off to “fun” things I lked If you needto do. A ticking kitchen timer might just be the asnwer to keeping you on track.
It can be a psychological wrestling match between writing and your personal life. When you spend hours on end writing, you feel guilty about what you are missing out on in your personal life. When you are at play with your family, you think about the hours gone from writing. Stick to a schedule and keep working to find the right balance for you.
