Now that fall is here in all its glory, it’s time to shake off the lazy days of summer and the back to school rush to make time for your writing once again. Notice that I said “make time” not “find time.” If you have been writing for some time you know that finding time rarely if ever happens. Being successful as a writer requires careful planning and a determination to carve out those precious hours—or even minutes—when you can invest time in your writing career.
I suggest you sit down now, or sometime soon, and determine where you might find those blocks of time when you can actually write. Then make appointments with yourself to do just that—and write them on your calendar. If you honor those appointments like you do those with the doctor or dentist, you will see some writing projects come to completion.
