Writing When You Can: 2 Tips for Busy People

IMG_2897

Some authors have the wonderful opportunity to be full time writers, but many others have to squeeze their writing time in between a full time job, caring for a family, etc.

Sometimes finding a block of time to sit down and write can feel like scheduling a chore you’d rather ignore.

The trick to starting is to treat writing like a hobby. If you can’t dedicate 6 hours a day to writing and reading just yet, start with a smaller chunk of time. 10 minutes. 30 minutes. 1 hour. Start by setting a goal to write every day during a small, manageable time slot.

Time restraints not the best method for you? Aim to write a page a day in your spare time. Whether you’re taking a coffee break, riding the subway, waiting for dinner to finish cooking, sitting in rush hour traffic….the daily gaps waiting to be filled with your words on a page are endless.

While there’s no magical formula that can create extra time in a day, there are many tips and tricks to fitting in what you’re passionate about. So try out both of these methods, find what works best for you, and let us know what you discover!
