How Do You Find Time to Write?


Oh, to be thirteen again.

Just when I thought I was the only one struggling to carve out some time to write every day, along comes this sweet, thirteen-year-old asking for my advice on how to stay motivated. What an encouragement for me.

I offered a humble reply and then lo and behold I discovered sitting in my inbox an email from Ali Luke at Aliventures. She had sent me an EBook, “How to Find Time for Your Writing.”Below are 10 tips I gleaned from Ali’s EBook.

  • Your writing does matter
  • Make it a priority
  • Remember when you write you’re honing your skills
  • Establish a steady routine
  • Keep a log
  • Carve out 30 minutes a day
  • Write out your short and long-term goals
  • Find a quiet spot to write
  • Be prepared for distractions
  • Take time to reflect on how great you felt when you sat down to write

I encourage all who read my blog to email to receive your “FREE” copy.

I would love to know what your secret is on carving out time to write.
