This is a questions that is frequently asked. I’m married, plus I work full time as an insurance agent so how do I find time to write?
Writing a full length novel is a monumental task, but when you love writing the way I do, it doesn’t become a task at all, it’s pure joy. I only allow myself to write on the weekends, so it’s something I look forward to all week. Sometimes my fingers actually itch, when the urge to create overcomes me.
Sunday nights after I go to bed, as I toss and turn trying to fall asleep, I start planning what I will write next weekend. When Saturday morning gets here, I’m usually at my computer by 7:30 or 8:00.
The words just flow. Sometimes, it’s exactly what I planned to write all week, but other times, my characters decide to take over and they take my story in directions I never even thought about going. Either way, it’s a fun journey, a trip I never get tired of taking.
You can tell what’s important to a person by what they spend time doing. You will always find time to do the things that make you happy. I autographed a book for a friend last week with the words “I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.” That’s so true. If all of my readers enjoyed reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them, I’d be on the Best Seller List in a heartbeat.
