IWSG monthly post
After publishing my 9th book (and editing nrs 10 and 11) I looked at the timeline of my publications.
I have made 11 books in 3 years. Illustrated three of them (altogether about 240 pictures). Done my marketing, social networking – and writing. All the while having a 9-5 job.
Before my novels I spent 5 years studying Egyptology – Certificate and Diploma in Egyptology at the University of Manchester. All the while having a 9-5 job. And this now continues with my MA in Egyptology studies.
Many people have asked how the heck did I manage to do this. This stopped me thinking - I have simply been finding ways and tweaking my calendar through the years whenever necessary. And clearly there are writers out there who shared the same problems I did and do. A full life, a day job, friends, family... So many things you cannot simply ignore. And yet you want to write. How to find that time?
So I decided to write down and publish my tips on how to find writing time. At first I thought I'd come up with like three tips. But it seems I have used so many tricks I did not even think much about - the words just poured out. I have already done the draft and am polishing it. But before I put it out to the world I'd like to hear from you, if you are a writer with time management problems.
What tips would you need regarding your writing time? I could address those if I have met similar problems, but forgot to add them to the list.
Or do you have a good tip you'd like to share?
