How do you sit and just write when you have no time
I a procrastinator I find myself wanting to write but never actually sit to it. Any advice please
I have discovered that I am writing because I enjoy it, so I write in the few minutes I might be doing something else quick and fun like watching a short t.v. program or checking and replying to e-mail. I feel I have almost no free time. I am a working mom with two kids. I am a teacher so I rarely feel like am "off work" unless I am on vacation or unemployed. Fit in a few minutes when you can. Doing things you enjoy keeps you sane.P.S. I am writing at 11p.m.-baby is finally asleep-ok now I need sleep. Good night and good writing.
Forced writing does not work so try to stay away from trying to shove your desire into a small space. I do not write well until an idea takes shape in my head. On that basis, I find that I can write in my head such that the story line and the characters begIn to take shape. It's a great way to hammer out rough ideas that you can fine tune when you actually sit down to write. It is also a great mental exercise that helps with both memory and creativity. Don't worry about all the gymnastics, you don't need to remember everything and the good stuff you think of will stick with you almost effortlessly. Hopevit works for you and good luck.
