I ran across a blog on Writer's Digest several days ago entitled How to Write While Managing a Full-Time Job: 5 Ways to Maximize your time. If you follow me on Twitter you might have seen me retweet it. Anyway, as I was reading this I kept thinking to myself "I DO THIS!" It is so very similar to what I have written in my previous blogs that either this guy is stalking me or he is a fellow genius. :-)
So, here are his 5 Ways to maximizing writing time (abbreviated) and how they relate to me (and my blog):
If you can’t give it your best, then give it what you can.
Train your mind to think like a writer.
Make writing a priority. I have talked about this many times, I believe, but my favorite was in the blog post "How bad do you want it?" I actually don't still get up that early to write (which I discussed in a more recent blog entry) because caring for an infant is exhausting and I just cannot get up that early anymore. Maybe one day...but for now, I do most of my writing at night.
All true. I can vouch for it.
