I kind of think about when a husband and wife decide they want to start having children but then they wait. To have enough money, but there never seems to be enough. To have the right job, but never seem to find it. To get that promotion you’ve been waiting for, but it never comes. To, to, to, there seems to always be something that gets in the way. As any parent will tell you, if you wait until the “perfect” time you will never have them. You just have to do it and somehow it all works out.
The same is true for writing. There will always be that load of laundry that needs to be done. Or that bathroom that needs to be cleaned. Or grocery shopping. Or any number of things. You have to give yourself the time to do it. Whether its only 15 minutes a day or 6 hours. Find the time and then stick to it. When you do, it will feel so rewarding. Now I just have to remember to stick to my own advice (she smiles).
