Do I have the Time?

Do I have the Time?

This bit of advice has two parts to it. The first is finding time to write each day. Second, set writing goals each day.

Let’s start with the first part, finding time to write. All you need is an hour a day to do the writing. Do you need to play that video game or watch that TV show? What about the time you spend posting on facebook? Time that can be spent writing. It doesn’t matter if you write by hand or use a computer. Sit down and write.

Next we have setting a daily goal. It doesn’t have to be two or three thousand words, five hundred, or a thousand words a day is easy. I bet you write at least five hundred words a day on FB comments alone. Put those words to better use and work on your story instead. I’ve set a goal of a thousand words a day, but usually go over that which is fine. The words add up and next thing you know, you have finished the first draft of your story.

The more you write, the better you become. You need to exercise your mind the same way you exercise your body to keep it healthy.

Remember to take breaks if you decide to sit down and write for a long period of time, go outside for a bit of fresh air or raid the kitchen.

May the words ever flow!
