If you want to be a writer, you have to write. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? The hard part isn’t knowing what you have to do so much as it’s finding when to do it. Sure, you have to write, but you also have to pay the bills, spend time with your family, and take the occasional shower. There’s no shortage of things you want to do, either, from catching up with friends to watching Game of Thrones on HBO. It can seem impossible to fit writing in amid all your other priorities.

  1. It’s tough trying to work, keep a home, manage some kind of a social life and personal hygiene and write a book without becoming a total recluse! But we keep calm and carry on!!!


  2. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing. I am guilty of that, most of us probably are. I can get lost in blogging and surfing and marketing, I lose track of time and then I find I don’t have time to write.


  3. Thanks for the plug on your blog. Many authors write something and then quickly get caught up with marketing their work that they forget to keep writing. The easiest way to get people to read your stuff is to consistently have new stuff for them to read. Sounds simple, I know.


  4. That’s exactly right! I jot down ideas all the time but I feel as though I should have scheduled time to work on all of the different projects. I just work on items when I can and I still seem to get things done.


  5. The best bit of advice came from someone in my writer’s group before I was ever published: Writer’s write.
    It’s as simple and as complicated as that. And when you figure out the schedule thing, keep me posted!
