How do you find time to write in your busy day?
This month question from the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. It is a great place to meet people, we support and motivate each other. If you like the idea you can join here.
The very first thing I do when I wake up is eat my breakfast. Straight away afterwards I start to write. I do not have my shower, I do not wash my face or my teeth. My weekly goal is to write 5000 words into my Work in Progress. I work on my WIP Monday to Friday, weekends off. I try to write 1500 words in my morning session. If I don’t reach it, that is okay for me. This week, I wrote 989 words on Monday, 1352 words on Tuesday, and today I wrote 1564 words. If I write my daily count tomorrow then I will have surpassed my 5000 words goal for this week.
My WIP is my most important writing task. I spend the rest of the day doing whatever needs to be done. Then, if I have the time, I try to write a 500 word story that is not connected to my WIP. Or I edit a previous 500 word story.
At the weekend I will jot out a poem. And that is when I write my blog post.
This is my routine for the moment, it seems to work well for me. It has taken a long time to figure this routine out. A lot of failures, but sure that’s what it’s all about!
