First of all what keeps you from writing? For me it's (the excuse is) I don't have enough time. So, how do I make enough time? First list what you do in one day.
- I wake up.
- 2 turn on the computer.
- Let two dogs out.
- Feed the cats.
- Take care of nature.
- Feed the dogs
- Let the other 2 dogs out.
- Play Farmville for 2 hours while I wake up.
That's just from 6-8 AM. Which of these things can I change? The only one I can see that I can change is Farmville. If I stop playing farmville, I can free up 2 hours of my time. Voila- I just got rid of one excuse. So, I need to do something writing related with this extra time. If it's true that I am still sleep addled, perhaps I can do research on my next story or find a prompt or prompts to write about... Or I can simply began writing. Whatever I decide to do here is infinitely better than playing farmville.
By the end of today- Come up with one thing that you can change to free up your writing time.
