    A person doesn't "find" time.  You "make" time.  It's about discipline, organization, and committment.

    For example, I just published a hub about Proper Grammar and the use of pronouns.  It took me less than 30 minutes, start to finish. 

    If you have a truly difficult time "making" (or "finding") time in your day, I suggest that you spend a week documenting the way you spend your time.  Literally carry a small notepad with you at ALL times, I write down what you are doing. 

    For example:
    7:35am -- woke up
    7:40 -- 8:00 am -- made coffee, brushed teeth, let dogs out
    8:00 -- 8:45 am -- checked email, replied, deleted trash, etc.
    11:30 -- 11:50:  talked to sister on phone
    12:30 -- 1:00:  Made lunch for kids, did dishes
    6:00 -- 7:00: watched television
    7:00 -- 7:30: checked email
    8:00 -- 10:00 pm: watched television and read novel

    The point is, if you do this for an entire week, you'll find the gaps.  There WILL be gaps, if you journal truthfully. 

    It is all of those 5 - 15 minute gaps that add up in a day, allowing us plenty of time for writing, exercising, or a little pampering and TLC -- the most often neglected item on a woman's to-do list!
