4 Ways to Make Time for Your Writing (Even if You Really, REALLY Don’t Have Any)

4 Ways to Make Time for Your Writing (Even if You Really, REALLY Don’t Have Any) | Writing And  Self Publishing | Scoop.it
You want to write ... you really, really do.

You keep waiting for a good time to open up in your schedule, but it seems that every day you hit the sack wondering, “Where did the time go?”

I get that. Between our jobs, families, housekeeping chores, and other obligations, it seems like we have zero minutes left over to work on our passions.

I’ve coached many, many writers around this theme, and also wrote a book for women who want to do it all—including starting a side business—but don’t seem to have the time: How to Do It All: The Revolutionary Plan to Create a Full, Meaningful Life — While Only Occasionally Wanting to Poke Your Eyes Out With a Sharpie. (Though the book is aimed at women, the strategies apply to men, too!)

Ready to make the time to write more—and get your writing business off the ground? Here are the top tips from my research:Read more ›

Have you been toying with the idea of becoming a full-time freelance writer?

If so, I've got some tips for you. It's time to change your thinking.

Writing full-time to pay your bills isn't for the meek. And it's not a career you can succeed at with a half-hearted effort. This is going to take serious commitment, and a thick skin.

I hear from writers every day who're in love with the idea of becoming a freelancer...but they're hooked on the security of that paycheck. Fears hold them back.


If this is you, let me give you a step-by-step on what successful, full-time freelance writers do to launch their business:
