Writers are fortunate in this, because even if all we have is a stub of pencil and the reverse side of a power bill, we can do the work. Nobody can make us do it, but equally nobody can stop us. Nothing can – except lack of time. For writers, like everybody, have what can feel like unlimited duties to feed our own needs and those of others.
Given our busy lives, a writing career looks like a daunting challenge. All those words. All that outlining, drafting, revising, selling. How can writers fit full-time writing careers inside the full-time lives we all lead?
Only 24 hours in a day is a threat. But a whole 24 hours every day is a promise. Because time can be, to a great extent, under our control.
More next time on making time subject to our will. What a useful superpower.
Have another brilliant writing day.
