HOW DO YOU FIND TIME TO WRITE?

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.

Happy Reading!
