Finding Time to Write

Finding the time to write can be a difficult task for any writer. One of the most common complaints that I've heard when it comes to those who want to write is that they don't have the time to write a book. But the writer always finds at least a little time to write because "writers write".

Think that you are too busy to write?

Try 10 minutes. At some point in the day: morning, lunch break, right before going to bed, whatever works best for you. Take that moment and whatever tools used and write. Do that every day for a month and see how far you get.

If that works really well, maybe try for half an hour.

For me. I have too much time. I could be writing 3-5 hours a day, if I could be dedicated enough. But I get distracted with other things. (another topic for later). Writing often is something that I need to work on, like many of my fellow writers.
