finding time to write


I notice the single biggest obstacle in people realizing their writing dreams is lack of writing time. I think people might be under the impression that writers have an overabundance of time on their hands. The truth is most writers have day jobs and families and social commitments just like everyone else. They have to engage in life or they will not have inspiration for writing or food on the table. Here are some other falsehoods that sometimes circulate about novel writers:
- they have money set aside that lets them sit down to write 9-5
- they have child care
- they do not get interrupted
- they only write when well rested
most writers i know write without the benefit of any of the above. the truth is, if you are a writer, you need to write and you will make time for it.
so what are you waiting for?
