Writing is something I love, but not something I can always do.
I’ve been working forty hours a week for a while. I’m a full time student with an internship and a job. I might even do National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) again.
In all honesty, I love being busy. I never like wasting a single day or even an hour. I want to accomplish something and make my time worth it. But it can get hectic when finding writing time. It’s difficult to find time to write without interruptions – but it’s not impossible.
The best way to find time is to start with how you write. For example, I write better after dinner. Most of the time, I sit on the floor between my desk and my bed. The darker the night, the better I write. But I’m not as good after about one a.m. Even to me, there’s a limit. Figuring out if you’re a morning, afternoon, or night writer helps when picking a time to write.
Second, writing is something you have to push yourself to do. I set aside time every day to write for either this blog, my novel, short stories, or a college class. If I don’t push myself, it doesn’t happen.
If not, I still find small amounts of time to write. For example, I write on my phone while on break at work. If I’m a passenger in a car, I’ll pull out my phone and write sometimes.
Time is difficult, but we can make it work. Do what you love. Go write. You can do it.
