When's the write time?
Happy Wednesday, everyone! =D Though I have to admit, I'm giving all of you a long sigh today *sssiigggghhh*
Once again the 100 Follower Challenge winners have failed to notify me. Therefore, the winners do not receive their prize. Since this is the third time I'll have drawn new winners, if no one claims the prizes this time then the giveaway will simply have no winners. I can't keep drawing names every week. Honestly, it makes me very sad that no one has responded. The whole reason I have the winners notify me is so I can see if they're actually reading my blog or whether they're just another number on the follower list. Only my real followers deserve prizes.
So for the final time, the winners of the 100 Follower Challenge are........*drum roll*........................................*drum roll*.......................Candyland and KellyDexter!
Congrats, ladies! Please contact me by next Wednesday, October 6th to claim your prize. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and write "100 Follower Challenge Winner" in the subject line. In the email please let me know which book you would like from the giveaway vault and list the address you would like it mailed to--the books are given out on a first come first serve basis.
Now onto the post!
I have had NO TIME to write lately. As of today it will have been three weeks since I've been able to get a single word down--on my current W.I.P that is, I wrote 3000 words for a short story class, but that doesn't count. Let me tell you, the thought that I'm not getting anything done is driving me nuts! I want to write, but I just cannot fine the time while maintaining all my homework/work and still holding on to my sanity.
Then I got to thinking: 'I can't be the only writer who is this busy,' which led me to the question: when is the right time for me to write? Or as our title states, when is the write time? For those of you who are super busy, how do you find time to fit writing into your hectic life?
For example, I have a professor who wakes up at 5am every morning and sacrifices some sleep, so she can write before anyone in her household wakes up--that's not happening, so don't even suggest I do that lol. But you get my point. I've heard of others writing on their laptop while cooking or cleaning, etc.
So what technique do you use that might aid me or others in finding the write time? Do you never watch T.V and kick back--so writing takes up all your free time? Do you write while you do laundry? Do you carry your laptop to the doctor's office? I'd like to hear your methods. Who knows, maybe one of you will inspire me and others to do the same.
Til Friday! ;-)
