Time Management and Writing

busy-peopleThe other day I was on Goodreads, and briefly discussed with another author my struggles with having so much to do outside of writing, and it leaves me very little time to even think about jotting down ideas or anything.

She told me that I need to just focus on the quality of my work not the quantity. So, that started me thinking, okay, maybe she’s right, well, I’m sure she is because she has had five books published. Anyways, I decided that I was going to use the curse of time management to my advantage. Then I remembered my first College teacher telling me and the rest of the class to at least write ten to fifteen minutes a day, and set aside one day out of the week to spend just taking care of you. Whether it be writing, reading or whatever truly relaxes and inspires you.

So, today, that is what I’m doing. I will be working on only things that have to do with writing for the most part. Instead of my day being filled mostly with business, schoolwork and housework, it will be filled with jotting ideas down, working on blogs, reading my friends blogs, and so forth.

They say it takes three weeks to form a habit and to always start something new on Mondays, so here we go world!


About jazzyjenness

I'm the mother of three girls, a Grammy to two little girls, a girlfriend and we have a cat with many nick names, depending on his mood and activity, or lack thereof. I've been writing since I was about 8 or 9, and it is something that I love to do. When we read books, we do it for entertainment, escape, and education; the three E's. These are also the reasons why I write, to entertain, educate and escape. My desire is not just to do what I love, but I want to give hope and inspiration to others through my stories. Currently, I am working on obtaining my Master's degree in Creative Writing and hope to also become an instructor at my school one day and teach Fiction Workshop.

    I am also in the process to create a habit. It’s hard, bloody hard though!
    At the end of my post below, I mention a very interesting article I read on the Guardian where the author (who published a book for children) provides some tips on how to stick tl the writing habit. I hope you find it useful.
