Finding Time to Write

     "If I had a year off, I'd write a novel." Maybe you would. Maybe you wouldn't. Often the greased slide to writer's block is a huge batch of time earmarked: "Now write." Making writing a big deal tends to make writing difficult. Keeping writing casual tends to keep it possible. Nowhere is this more true than around the issue of time.

     One of the biggest myths around writing is that in order to do it we must have great swatches of uninterrupted time….The myth that we must have time--more time--in order to create is a myth that keeps us from using the time we do have. If we are forever yearning for more, we are forever discounting what is officered.

Julia Cameron, The Right to Write, 1999
