The Secret to Creating Time To Write A Book

June 23rd, 2022

Are you not writing your book because you cannot find the time?
Or do you insist you need a longer amount of time than you have to give your subject matter the attention it needs. “I can’t write a book unless I have two or three hours a day, five days a week to devote to it.”
Right. That’s a surefire road to book writing failure. Would you force yourself to run a two hour marathon when you haven’t even jogged 1/2 a mile yet? Setting writing expectations that are too high is the same kind of recipe for disaster.
Not many with busy work, family and social life schedules have the time, energy, motivation or persistence to make that kind of commitment to write a book — or starting any new writing project. Even those of you who are professional, disciplined writers can have issues around creating enough time for writing the books you are most called to write.
Here is the first secret I have found about writing a book. If you wait until you have “time” to write that book, chances are, you won’t. The same goes for “enough time.” You will never have “time” to write a book.
Look at “time” as one of the “guardians at the gate” so to speak – whether you are a beginning writer or a well-published one. You and any writer on a journey to write a book face the “time to write” issue each time you take the first step of saying yes to your writer self–and for every book you write thereafter.
Myself included. Even after 25 years of writing books, articles and a blog, when I begin a new project or book or take a hiatus from writing and return to it, I am back at square one. I, too, need to reclaim the time for creating. I need to be like a wily coyote and gently trick it, entice it, ease it into being.
But then the miracle happens. The more I write, even if I only write 10 to 15 minutes at a time, the more I keep those appointments to write even for short time periods, the more actual time for writing opens, bends, flexes and stretches for me. And that pesky time guardian lets me pass–for the moment.
You can claim that time to write your book, too. And find yourself writing things you never thought possible–regardless of how much “time” for creating books you have or don’t have.
Here’s how to create time for writing:
Number One Secret to Managing Time for Writers:
Do less. Expect less of yourself. Take yourself off the “I’m not writing, self-flagellating, guilt” hook.
Eliminate saying you need at least two hours or you won’t be able to go “deep enough” to write something profound and meaningful.
Instead, stay in the “I don’t know.” Take the chance to give up that expectation and trust that you might surprise yourself and dive into those writing depths immediately.
Reduce that “2 hours a day, 5 days a week” to a commitment of “15 minutes a day, 3 times a week.”
If you still can’t find the “time,” reduce it even more to 15 minutes once a week or five minutes once a week. Then, add more time slowly.I recently went back to this practice myself. I had been on a hiatus from writing a novel. Initially, I tried to dive back into writing 2 to 3 hours a day, because I have the “discipline” to do that and have written books, been a professional writer for 25 years. But instead of writing, I found myself playing computer solitaire,wanting to research every nuance of my subject matter, reading email (the death knoll to any creative spark), extending the length of my meditation practice.
Did I berate myself for not living up to my commitment?
No. Well, maybe a little.
But then, I lowered my expectations. What a relief.
I remembered that being gentle and kind with my writer self is what had worked best for me in the past. Once more, I recognized that “resistance” is part of the package for most writers, including me. It goes with the writing territory.
So I dropped my commitment the first week to writing 15 minutes a day 3 times a week. I told myself that if I wrote more, fine. If not, fine.
As I felt ready in the next week or two, I added to the amount of time I spent writing in a week. I’m up to a commitment of one hour a day, 4 to 5 days a week. I am slowly working my way up to a regular schedule of 2 to 3 hours a day on the novel.
This method works for me. And in my case, I’ve astounded myself again and again about what I can actually write in those 15 minutes — if that’s the time I have set to write. In fact, many of my most profound, heart wide open, soulful, gifts-from-the-muses writing for my books have spontaneously flowed through me in 15 to 30 minutes. They can for you, too.

Mind Discipline for Authors: How to Find Time to Write

June 23rd, 2022

Finding time to write is the biggest difficulty and complaint I hear from authors. It is even a bigger problem than procrastination. In fact, I think procrastination is simply the result of not finding time to write.
The real problem is not lack of time to sit down and write. The problem is that when we do sit down before the computer, we procrastinate because we don’t know what to write, and we don’t know what to write because we haven’t spent any time thinking about writing before we sat down. After all, it’s not easy to pump out a few thousand words just because it’s the hour when you’re supposed to write, and it’s not easy to spend that time thinking about what to write when a blank screen or page is staring at you screaming, “Fill me!”
When is the real best time to write? When you’re not writing. Or let me put it another way: Whenever you can find time to think about your book.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But if I can’t find time to write, how will I find time to think about my book?” But we all have plenty of time to think about our books. In truth, time is all around us, and the real problem is that we simply haven’t learned to discipline our minds. Here’s a case in point. The author Agatha Christie managed to write something like eighty novels. Granted, she came from a well-to-do family and lived at a time when women weren’t supposed to work, other than doing housework, so you might think she had time, and I’m sure she learned to set aside time regularly to do her writing, but when did she say was the best time to write? She is often quoted as saying, “The best time to plan a book is while you are doing the dishes.”
Christie might not have had a pen in hand while she was washing and rinsing and wiping plates and glasses, but she had a mind that was able to function while her hands were busy. And truthfully, most great books are written as the result of an idea, as the result of taking the time to think about your book. Considering that Christie is the world’s all-time bestselling author with 2 billion books sold, who are you to argue with her?
I firmly believe that if you discipline your mind to think about your writing whenever a few minutes of time present themselves, rather than wasting that time by letting your mind wander, you will have ideas, be able to create characters, and plot out plots for your novels, or come up with interesting topics, arguments, and supporting evidence for your non-fiction. And once you know what you want to write about and get excited about it, you’ll be able to find an hour or two a day, or even just fifteen minutes a day, to focus on getting those words onto paper.
So when is the best time to write? Whenever your mind has a free moment. Here are fifty examples of when you can discipline your mind to focus on your writing.
1. While doing the dishes.
2. While waiting in the waiting room of the dentist’s office.
3. While lying in the chair at the dentist-provided your hygienist isn’t too chatty.
4. While waiting in the line at the bank.
5. While waiting in the line at the car wash.
6. While in the car wash.
7. While riding the train.
8. While riding the bus.
9. While driving the car.
10. When you first lie down to take a nap.
11. When you go to bed and are waiting to fall asleep.
12. When you wake up at 3 a.m. and can’t fall back asleep.
13. When you wake up at 5 a.m. and can’t fall back asleep.
14. When you wake up at 7 a.m. and don’t feel like getting up yet.
15. When you’re dusting the house.
16. When you’re vacuuming the house.
17. When you’re washing the windows.

Finding Time to Write Is Hard

June 23rd, 2022

Finding the time is one of the hardest parts of being a writer -at least for me anyway. I work days part-time, and have a young nine-month-old grand son living with me who requires 99.5 % of my free time when I’m home. Writing is just that little thing I do on the side, when there is extra time between naps! Everyday, in between loading the dishwasher and making the bed, in between feedings and nap time, I find ten or twenty minutes to jot down ideas or write in my journal.
Church starts this morning in little over an hour and Baby Kendray is napping so while the dishwasher is whining and the dryer is buzzing, I am making use of what few minutes I have to spare. Since there are several writing projects saved on my computer desktop, these few minutes are used to make editorial changes, jot down ideas and read a few articles about writing – my inspiration. I even had a few minutes to work on this particular article about finding time to write. There are times when my mind is exhausted after a hard day at work and then coming home to a little one. I either watch a little television or just take it easy until I can find the energy to write.
Starting a new family wasn’t in my plans a few years ago but when my daughter gave birth to Baby Kendray and realized three weeks after he was born that she didn’t really want him, it was my grandmotherly duty to step in and adopt him. Having met him and loving him from day one wasn’t hard to do. How she gave him up without second thoughts is beyond me, but there is a little more to this story than is being told. All I can say is that the situation my daughter found herself in wasn’t good and yes, drugs were involved – it was either take him in or the State would take him and I couldn’t see that happening, especially when it was someone I cared so much for. His mother has little to do with him now except during supervised visits once a week. His sperm donor has no contact with him whatsoever.
But now that Kendray is a part of my life, I schedule my writing time around him. Sometimes I write while he is in my lap! The truth is, he just gave me more to write about! My journal is filled with pages about Kendray – about his new tooth, when he started crawling, and how he makes me laugh. There are so many new ideas to write about – it’s just finding the time to write that is the hard part – or making myself write when I don’t even feel like moving a single muscle!
Make use of every free minute you can use to write. Have an idea, jot it down. Ponder it in your mind until you’re ready to write. When you sit down to write, the idea is there – all you have to do is take that idea and write the thoughts you had in your mind -turn it into a poem, a story or an article. The most important thing to remember is that finding time to write is hard work, but once it is written, you can make into a workable piece of art. Never let an idea go without jotting it down even if it’s no more than a short sentence. That sentence could turn into a saleable story.
