If you have a full time job/career unrelated to writing, how much time do you set aside for writing?
It's not easy but usually a couple of hours a couple of nights a week and some on Saturday afternoon. I also write on my lunch break if I can.
I try to write "something" every week. I find that planning a session never seems to work out. Most of my writing is done at night when I can get alone and just "explore". Being in the Retail industry it can be extremely challenging finding the time ,especially, at this time of the year. I take heart knowing January & February are just around the corner and for me that represents some much needed down time and lots of good writing opportunities.
I am an early riser. Enjoy the solitude that comes with a sleeping house, a cup of Joe and favorite music, so I write. Every morning, seven days a week. Somestimes its only 30 minutes, sometimes half a day. The luxury of retirement.
As much as I can ,whilst maintaining getting some vitamin d and hanging with my friends and family.
So its usually late nights and earlier mornings...
i would say a couple of hours four times a week although i find it hard to write while uninspired
I never have a time 'set aside' for writing as I couldn't be so methodical in something I like doing. I tend to write when I feel moved to as it is something that can be done almost anywhere .... all you need is a pen & something to write on.
Once there is a stack of written work done, I generally get round to typing it up, which is a chore akin to ironing laundry for me :-)
I carry my mini notebook with me everywhere I go, that way if I find time, opportunity, or inspiration, I'm ready.
I'm retired but when I was working I found time to play hockey in an adult league and I found time to work in my darkroom.
You have to allow yourself time for yourself. Mothers may find it more difficult when the kids are pre-school but everyone should be able to find an hour a day for themselves somehow to do some exercises and indulge in some kind of hobby.
Even if you write only 20 minutes a day, one day you will have written a novel. Really... I did.
hobbys are very important, so you must set aside atleast 2 hours a day, before sleeping, to devote to ur writing and/or journal, or whatever is it you're working on. best of luck darl.!! keep writing!

I have learned through forum discussions that including an outgoing anchor text link in a text capsule in a hub is good idea when a) the word or phrase used as the anchor text closely relates to what the hub is about, b) the webpage linked to closely relates to what the hub is about, and c) the...
