SEPTEMBER 7TH QUESTION FOR BLOGGERS: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?

For me ... the question behind the question is: How important is my writing to me today? 

If I left my writing until I "found time" - I wouldn't write. There are so many obligations and have-to-do items each day that finding extra time in a day is a nearly impossible task for me. Therefore, in order for me to accomplish my writing goals each day, I must TAKE the time. I must make writing a priority. Are my goals important enough for me to get up at 5am and write? Important enough to get up at 4:30am and write?

Many successful writers have full-time jobs in addition to their writing careers. Often times, they get up crazy early to write. And they publish books on a regular schedule. So, if you're like me and have no full-time job, but find yourself extremely busy with all of the other demands of life, we must TAKE the time to write and make it a priority. Get up early. Write first.

What about you? How do you make writing a priority in your day?


  1. Amen to that! I said the same thing...with a slightly different slant. I have given up a number of things in order to write--radio, TV, sleep... It's all about putting our time where our priorities are, eh?

  2. Here here! You are so right. Not working outside the house is NOT the same as not working.

  3. if you want to become pro writer and learn all the secret techniques of writers you can peek at this page where you find a lot of good content dedicated to writing world.

  4. I admit I've been faltering a bit on this lately. Doing writing-related stuff - blogging, critiquing, querying the finished work - but not writing. So easy too fall out of good writing habits.
