Because I don’t know you, I can’t tell you exactly how you can make time for writing, but I assure you that you can. I can also tell you that your relationship with time is far more subjective than you might imagine. The best way to get a handle on how much authority you actually have over your time is to start becoming aware of how you are spending it. Pay attention to how you’re investing your time today, and you’ll develop a clear picture of the mix of mandatory and voluntary activities that shape your days. Once you become conscious that your relationship with time is not something that happens to you but a dynamic orchestrated by you through dozens of large and small choices you make every day, you can evaluate if you would like to choose to continue the pattern you are in, or to create a new one.
Scheller offers some great tips on how to make the most of your writing time.
For me it seems like there’s never enough writing time in the day. Granted, I’m working a full time job, in rehearsals for another production, actively involved a church, so time is precious.
But I want to be a writer.
No, strike that I AM a writer.
And I’m more determined to be about the business of making this happen.
