More time to write

Take a deep breath. Breathe. Really.

It’s time to think for a moment. When was the last time you spent hours focusing on your craft? How many hours do you spend on writing? How many hours do you wish you spent on writing?

Sometimes it’s good to take a step back and reevaluate. How much time in a week do you spend doing something you hate? What are some steps you can do to change that?

Sometimes it can be eye-opening to realize how much we get stuck on a fruitless path.

For me, I spend too much time at work, trying to get more hours to pay loans off. I don’t spend as much time on my craft as I want to. But I’ve realized that, and ever so slowly, I will do more of what I want.

  1. It’s a tough one! But I’d say still keep writing whenever possible and then you can always develop that craft when you have more time! Sometimes, working on our passion gives us relief from the hectic duties of our regular jobs, even though it’s more work essentially. But in the end, it will all be worth it 🙂

  2. Personally, I think my writing time is even more limited in that I’m quite tied to the environment being conducive to solitude and inspiration. With young kids at home and the demands of life admin, there’s a shortage of that ideal time…so it’s often late night writing for me. I don’t think there’s much I can change – given that I need to be around other people (which my introverted self sometimes hates)…but I suppose one way is to find the gaps and use those effectively. It’s a struggle I think we all go through.

    1. It is a struggle we all go through. It’s hard for me too to find time when I have a full time job (that I’m hoping to change soon), a blog, a volunteer position, writing for myself, social requirements, and more. It can all be quite hectic. But I try to find at least a little time somewhere. Cause something is better than nothing.

      1. Yup. We need to keep the words flowing, otherwise they may dry up altogether.

        For me, a Bluetooth keyboard is an indispensable tool. Helps me to write wherever I am without lugging around a laptop. I barely write anything by hand anymore…. though that’s more a personal choice given physical challenges.

        1. I’m the same in a sense that I don’t write anything by hand anymore much. I actually can’t write by hand for too long every day cause of a wrist injury. But if I do it every once in a while, I’m fine.

          I haven’t ever used a bluetooth keyboard before though. I usually lug around my heavy laptop almost everywhere I go. Or I pull out my phone for a quick note. (But, if I’m being honest, I should’ve upgraded my laptop too months ago. It’s getting old.)
