How do you find time to write in your busy day? IWSG post


It’s the first Wednesday of the month, and time for another monthly post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.  If you want to join in, follow the link!

This month’s question: How do you find time to write in your busy day?

Well, really, sometimes I don’t.  And I’m really ok with that–and I always come back to it, because it’s really part of who I am.

But for me, it really helps to have a structure, a class, a blog hop (like this) or challenge, like NaNoWriMo.  And sometimes, like tonight, it’s by doing just a little, just so I can feel like I did something, which is better than nothing.

As those of you who have been following my blog know, I took the past year off from teaching.  I did a lot of writing this past year–including 44 out of 52 drafts of illustrated children’s stories.  I’m watching to see how this back-to-school time goes–tomorrow is my first day of school.  Time will tell.

How do you find time to write?

Thanks for stopping by!

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.

  1. I wish you a wonderful year with your class. I’m sure you’ll engage in lots of writing as part of your role – with and for the children. I always did! It was one of the greatest pleasures.

    • Homeschooling and blogging, not to mention caring for a large family–you are BUSY–I didn’t do so much writing when my (2) girls were young–there’s a time for everything, and sometimes it’s later

    • It is a lot of drafts–but this past year was really my year to write. I thought if I wrote a lot of drafts, I’d have a lot of editing to do this year. But those kicks definitely help–like IWSG. Thanks for starting IWSG–it helps me keep writing.
