As a marketing professional and father, scheduling time for writing has always been an area of focus and a challenge.
Every morning, I get up on the early side and begin my day writing over coffee and breakfast to make sure I prioritize it in my day.
At work, when my schedule permits, I walk to a nearby office park with a view of a sculpture and write while I eat lunch. This happens at least three times a week.
I am also never without either my laptop or paper and pen (which I even keep in my car). Many times I write during breaks in my schedule, including the twenty minutes it took for my jaw to get numb during a recent trip to the dentist:
I have also adopted a daily, weekly, and monthly word count for my novel-in-progress. For the month of February, I’m averaging 250 words a day. I didn’t reach my goal but the accountability helps.
Please feel free to comment and share any tactics that you use to make time in your life for your own writing.
