I’ve spoken several times about finding the time to write. One of the reasons I’ve developed my method is because there’s a lot of demands on my time.
There’s no such thing as waking up and having nothing else to do but get my ideas down on paper. There are responsibilities and obligations that take tremendous time energy and money.
I’m not telling you anything you don’t know.
What I am telling you is that you’re going to have to make a decision for yourself.
Are you going to do the writing that you say you want to do even when it’s hard?
Just the other day it was a bang bang kind of thing. I can’t even remember all the things I did. There were errands and taking care of other people and they were bills to pay and phone calls and emails to return.
So when Julie asked me if i wanted her to take Caleb with her to Target I was pretty enthusiastic. Once the house was quiet for a few minutes and I could finally think I realized I had no idea what I was going to write about.
I just knew that I hadn’t done anything in that regard and that’s not the plan. The plan is to write every day.
So at the top of a blank page I actually wrote something profane. Just trying to get the wheels moving.
I figured something out and it worked out to about 744 words. Not the greatest day of output but not a whiff either.
And there have been times I just leave the house and go to the car. Because I write on my phone I have what I need. Propping a laptop on my knees in the dark is just a little too sad.
Now not every day is challenging. But many are. And I make sure that I stick to the plan. Which is to write every day. That’s my plan and it may not necessarily be yours.
But if you want to be someone who has written a book you’re going to have to pick a piece of ground on the calendar where you say this is the day I start and you also have to have a date in mind when you are going to finish. That’s what real writers do.
Again because my method is simple you can follow a course of action where you start on one day and finish on another. And you’ll find it is fun and easy. You will also find that even on days when it’s tough you will be able to do it.
The ability to get writing done in the face of challenges is one of the many benefits of our program. It’s inside the members area and it’s just 55 minutes of audio you can listen to in order to get started today. There’s also a PDF reference guide and I’ve even added some bonus videos because I love teaching this method. I think once you give it a try and get some practice under your belt you will start living the benefits yourself. I hope you decide to check it out and become a real writer today.
