So here I am with a spare ten minutes and I find myself writing a blog post. I work a full time job – 40 hours a week, and have worked overtime the last 2 weekends. That’s 13 days straight so far. Add that to maintaining the yard, cleaning the house and caring for my kids, and I feel like I should be sitting on a unicycle, juggling eggs while I balance a book on the end of my nose!
I have stacks of books on my shelves, the covers unopened. A pile of DVD’s on the coffee table waiting to be watched. A novel on my laptop waiting to be edited. Heaps more books on my Kindle, waiting to be read. Critiques to be done for my writers group. And I haven’t mentioned writing anything new yet. How am I going to get through it all?
I don’t have all the answers, I’ll just keep plugging away, one thing at a time. But I am interested to know how you manage your time. So, how do you organise yourself so that you have time to write?
