Today is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.
This month’s question is:
How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
Sometimes I don’t. That’s the short and easy answer. Right now I am working on a huge project that requires as much time as I can give it (and maybe more), so I don’t have the time to write. I do try to fit in a few minutes here and there, but it’s not something I schedule.
Usually, I have writing and blog days. These are days exclusively dedicated to just those activities. I schedule them in at the beginning of the month and then plan my work days around that.
In addition to days dedicated to writing, I try to write each day, even if that means I only write for 15 minutes on a given day. Although in practice it sometimes means I don’t write anything at all some days.
The most important thing in making time for writing for me is making time for reading. The more I read the more I’m inspired to write.
