Time is a luxury for writers. Or maybe I should be honest and say, for this writer. With a job, and kids and pets and life, making a block of time to work is challenging. There were days when I could not make it happen. And that is a lousy feeling. Especially when you know it’s up to you to make it happen – or it doesn’t happen.
So I had to figure out a way to get work done in not even half the time – a sliver of the time is more accurate.
First time I gave this new approach a test run, I was working in 10 minute sessions.
When I came up with a second project, I was doing it in 5 minutes at a time.
Certainly not a luxury by any definition.
But it was effective. I was able to write and complete 2 books using this approach.
Would I like more time to write? Yes. I am actually thinking about renting an office around the corner for a couple hundred bucks a month.
But until then if I want to write I am going to have to make it happen in whatever time segments I can use. Sometimes this is in the car, sometimes it’s 5 in the morning before the riot starts.
And no matter how little time I can make for the current project, work gets done. And work piles up. With the projects already completed, that was a 250-page and 120-page book, respectively.
I just finished a shortie, just a 55-minute audio and 22-page instruction manual that teaches you how to make the most of limited time – and still get substantial work accomplished.
In my case because time was so short I had to come up with a completely new approach to “writing”. One that fit into tight time wedges and still allowed me to keep words flowing.
I find this method fun. Feels like I beat the Time Bandits at their own game. If you are pressed for time and are watching it slip away, this method might be what helps you get your writing projects done, instead of watching them get stolen from you.

Oh, a great benefit of this program is that you can listen to the audio on your phone, so if you’ve got earbuds or airpods or an implant you can still get the info that will help you truly “become a writer in your spare time.”
