Writing Time, Part 40. On Creating Writing Time Within the Working Week

book-Pen-small-e1424382992427-300x300In designing our ideal writing lives, within our everyday lives, it’s well to tailor them to our own rhythms, but it’s also worth challenging our scheduling habits.

Something that does not serve us has got to give, whether it’s TV or computer time, the Saturday grocery shopping trip (order online?) or the weekend cleaning blitz (a little every day, see flylady.net?)

And, if we can’t cut a single thing from our week to create more time, then we can and perhaps must say to ourselves There is a time for everything, and when I can, I will. My writer’s life will still be there when I’m ready.

Every writer’s experiences and needs are different, and we’ve all got particular dreams, talents and abilities that will push us, through planning and creating, ever more resolutely and effectively towards the writer’s life we desire. We can begin immediately to eliminate time-wasters that don’t serve us, and infuse the time we create this way with creative thought.

Everybody who is doing anything that feels worthwhile knows that enjoying it means doing the actual work. And we know that joy in work comes with making the time to forever improve and evolve in our craft.

I hope you’ll have another brilliant writing week. Cheers Mel
