A couple of weeks ago, someone asked me how I fit writing into my life. It's not very interesting, but here's how I do it.
7am - Get up and go to the day job.
3pm - Return from the day job. Start up computer, read and reply to email, check other sites etc.
4pm - Write.
5pm - Shower, dinner, chill out.
7.30pm - Write.
9pm - Chill out.
10.30-11pm - Bed.
Rinse and repeat! And that's it. My life's not all that interesting, is it? In addition to that, I also, like many writers, carry a notebook with me. The journey to and from work, and before finally dozing off, gives a extra little time. It does take will power to not get distracted and, more often than not, something arises which takes away from getting any work done. But everyone needs a break from time to time. All work and no play etc etc. If you schedule your life, how do you do it?
