In an ideal world, my writing day would look like this:
8.30am – Wave children off to school
8.30 – 9.30am – Do necessary chores
9.30am – 3.30pm – Writing time… bliss..
However, rarely does it look anything like this – there are always other commitments getting in the way.
Now that the school holidays are over I am thinking of trying to be more focused and by this I mean splitting my writing work into separate disciplines and then allowing each a specified time. The disciplines would be, for example, novel writing, social media, blogging, freelance non-fiction work etc..
The problem with this is that rarely do I find my writing works if I am doing it on a schedule. When I am writing my novels I find that I can write anything up to 7,000 words a day depending on how creative my brain is feeling – this, therefore, leaves little time for anything else that day. Blogging, social media and freelance work will thus take a back seat.
Am I trying to juggle too many things?
How do you organise your writing day?
Any thoughts or tips would be much appreciated!
