I have immense respect for the authors who have full time jobs, families and then a writing life.
I’ve been more of a free-and-easy writer, because freelancing lets you choose your options and timings, and I have an uber-supportive family when it comes to my writing.
But the last few weeks have been challenging, because of a combination of events—to sneak time out of life for writing has become not only a challenge but a sort of artistic achievement in itself!
I write in the time it takes the pasta to boil, or the aquarium to drain, or the vegetables to steam. I wake-sleep-wake early in the morning to dream up my stories, I write in my head when I hit the shower, I write in parallel in my thoughts as I cook.
What are the tricks you use to write when life simply WILL NOT allow you the time and the energy ?
“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
