One of the most challenging things for me, as a writer, is finding the time to write. I thought finding time was challenging before I had kids. All I had back then was a full-time job and a husband. Now, with 3 kids, a husband and a full-time job, the challenge is even bigger! This used to be a huge complaint of mine.
"I just don't have the time!"
And I didn't--because I wasn't making the time. When you want to do something badly enough, you MAKE time. And since everyone has just 24 hours in their day, that usually involves taking time away from things that are less important, like TV or that extra hour of sleep.
This blog is a pep talk to myself this morning. I didn't want to get out of my cozy bed to write, when everyone else in my household is sleeping. BUT now that I'm up, sipping on my first cup of coffee and sitting in front of the glow of my computer, I'm glad I did. My wip is calling me.
How do you make time for writing?
