Don’t Find Time to Write, Make Time
Finding time to write is a big issue for all writers, including myself. It’s downright frustrating when free time doesn’t match up with one’s creative impulse.
Recently a Fresh Pond Writer asked me for some advice on finding time. I’ll tell you what I told her: It’s all in your head. I don’t mean to sound condescending. What I mean is that you have to decide to do or not do. There is no try, as Yoda says. It’s the difference between looking for time to write and making time to write. It’s about prioritizing.
