Or, rather, how do you prevent things like housecleaning and answering emails from eating up all of your writing time?
Do you have a set time devoted to writing? Do you do it on the sly, when nobody's looking? Do you just not write when there's no time?
I tend to be more productive when I'm busy. Poetry is, after all, the new procrastination. If I don't jot things down on paper as I think them, they'll be gone.
Please share your thoughts on balancing, and any helpful hints that you have. I will return to this post when I'm mid-freak-out, for comfort.
