One of the common problems in life, especially when it comes to artists, is time.
There’s never time to write, because of other things: Work, college, family, and anything else that eats up time. While those do make it harder to write, there’s always room to squeeze in a bit of writing. A few sentences, a couple hundred words; anything to keep the creative juices flowing.
It sounds simple and sometimes it is, but there are times when life throws so much at you at once that writing comes to a halt for a few days, a week, maybe even two.
This week is that kind of week for me; just a mixture of things piling on at once cut off all contact to my novel and other writings. That aside, life should settle down this weekend, so I’m hoping to get more written, and throughout the week, as well. Hopefully that schedule will continue and once it’s time for me to go to France for a month, I’ll see how forgiving my schedule is when it comes to writing.
If all goes well, I’ll rework things so I get things I need to do spread out and sorted in such a way that they’ll give me the chance to write. It’s the least I can do; I hate being so busy that writing is not an option, unless I cut into my sleeping schedule – a schedule which is rarely regular, as is.
I just need to get this stuff out-of-the-way and focus on getting words on paper.
How do you get writing done when life is busy?
