This post is for Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writers Support Group (click the link for details on what that means and how to join. You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out). The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts on the monthly question or, alternatively, our fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
This month’s question: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
Actually, it’s my preferred activity. When I worked outside the house, it was my hobby. Now, it’s blended daily into my online teaching and coaching activities. I probably write a couple thousand words a day–I’ve never really counted them. That includes, blog posts, comments on forums and Discussion Boards, mentoring/coaching, class resources, articles for clients, editing for friends, articles for online ezines I write for, and whatever else comes up. Since I consider myself a teacher and a writer, writing is simply What I Do.
I love it.
The real question in my case is: How do I find time to do anything else?
