I often hear people saying they want to write but find it hard to make time to write.
The beauty of writing, is there is always time for it.
Yes, I understand that if you are working full-time and have a family, you may not have time to write that novel in a year but what you can do, is to write a bit at a time. Break your writing down into bite size chunks, to make it more manageable and take as long as you need.
You may want to try writing very little at first, for example, writing a letter in a TV magazine, or a supermarket magazine. Magazines are often looking for short well constructed letters on the magazine itself, previous letters, or on the products and services that it promotes.
If you can’t fit that in, remember, any writing is good writing practise and I bet you already write a lot and just don’t realise it, maybe you:
- Write on a Facebook wall
- Write a text message
- Write an email
- Write a shopping list
- Write a letter to a friend or loved one
- Make notes of things to remember
- Keep a diary
- Write calendar entries
- Reply to correspondence
Any time you write, is a good time to write. Stop and think for a moment, how many times do you actually write in a day. Now you can smile, that it is probably more times thank you think. Enjoy the moment.
