|The first Wednesday of the month is for IWSGers. Go here to learn more.|
I didn't start writing seriously until I was laid off from my job eight years ago and decided to cross book writing off my bucket list. Like many other writers, I discovered that writing a story worth reading is extraordinarily difficult and time consuming. It's a delicate mix of patience, focus, and skill made exponentially better through trial and error. I got my writing groove on.
|My newest dog, Ghost, requires not only a daily walk, but also lots of "Me" time.|
But my groove required time to exercise AND walk the dog, care for my family, and volunteer for my kids' activities. Plus quiet time to roll plot lines and characters around in my head like worry stones.
|My new job!!!|
I haven't found time to sit down and write anything new besides a blog post since.
This month I've determined to carve out writing time for myself a few days every week. I've got to. Bits and pieces of my next book are flitting around my head like light-starved moths. Ass in chair, words on paper. My mantra for November.
To those of you who work full time and still manage to write, you are my role models.
Now, tell me how you do it.
