In the blur of busy life finding time to write can be difficult. How do you juggle work, children, chores, hobbies, socializing and writing? How can you possibly find a balance when there’s just so much that needs doing?
I write at night. On the rarest occasion I may get a few words down in the day but without a doubt the majority of my writing is done at night. There’s jut far too much going on in the day, it is impossible to concentrate.
At one point I was a prolific gamer, ranking in the top ten for a certain multiplayer game that I loved but I had to give it up. I just didn’t have the time to game and write.
There have been times where I have sat up until 4am whittling my little fingertips down with my incessant typing. Then there have been times where I just haven’t made it to bed at all! The days that follow those nights are not fun at all.
I don’t go out as much as I used to. Sure, a night out with the girls would be great – but think of the amount of writing I could get done if I stayed in.
I’ve made sacrifices so that I could write. I have – I loved that multiplayer game!
I think it’s important to write regularly, even if it’s only a few hundred words a day but finding a balance is tough. How do you do it? Can it even be done? I would love to know.
