Life gets busier and busier, making finding the time to write a challenge. Doubly, triply so if you’re not yet paying the bills by writing. Writing becomes a second job squished around the one that actually puts money into the bank account.
It’s more than just that. Families need attention, and friends need ears. Chores need to be done. Housework needs to be finished. Gutters, lawns, tables, doorknobs, and sinks all need attention. The cats won’t feed themselves and leash-laws keep the dog from handling his own business.
Then there’s dinner, shower time, grocery-shopping, and the ever-demanding need for sleep… the list goes on.
So when is the perfect time to write? Unless you’re making megabucks, never (and maybe not even then!). There’s never a perfect time to write.
And that makes now the perfect time–or, at least, as good a time as any! Watch a little less Netflix, fill in that 30 minutes before work, and hit a few keys while you’re waiting for your kid’s practice to end. Before you know it, the stories will be on the page.
