What the? Wednesday

My what the? Wednesday is about time management. I could complain. I'm actually not. I'm looking for some advice.

I have an EDJ, even if it's really not evil. Hey, it pays the bills when writing doesn't (but then again, I didn't put pen to paper and fingers to keyboard because I wanted to get rich. I did it because I can't see myself not writing. Scouts honor--and yeah, I was a girl scout. Don't look so shocked. It didn't last forever, but I was a scout.). But lately I'm finding that either I've taken on too many projects (totally possible), things have gotten beyond my control (only when it's truly things I can't control--yanno, weather, the darn voices of my characters), and I want to get some of my projects to move forward but I feel like I'm spinning my wheels.

So I'm looking for some suggestions to manage my time. I have a schedule, but I can't always stick to it because with a youngling and animals, sometimes schedules are worthless. I've tried a timer, but I'm one of those masochistic people that will work on something until it's done because I can't leave it half done. I'll stay up all night working on a story if the flow is there.

What do you do to manage your time? Any tips? Suggestions? I'm all open ears.

HAHAHA - I laugh because it can't be controlled! Seriously, I do well, but not as good as I'd like. Just when I think I've got it all figured out - WHAM - life comes at me! Good luck!!
