“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.”
It’s the school holidays, and the designated writing time I usually have has gone by the wayside. I now need to be creative on two fronts – not just the writing itself, but also in finding precious writing minutes to make sure I get my last big MA assignment finished for the early autumn deadline, as well as not neglecting my novel. It’s down to me to make time.
I was pleased to find a post by Charlie Haynes (who founded and runs the Urban Writers’ Retreat), offering advice on how to – potentially – achieve another 15,000 words a month, simply by getting up earlier. Granted, that will have to be quite early (with the children leaping out of bed in a way they never do during term time), but it can be done. So I’ll give it a go. Wish me luck.
