The Battle of Finding Time

The first draft is just you telling yourself the story. ~Terry Pratchett

    That’s where I’m at right now. I’m telling myself the story. I wanted to finish the first draft by the end of 2017. Alas, it’s taking a bit longer. Finding time to write is an ongoing battle, but one I’m determined to win.
    What seems to work best for me is to work after everyone living in our house has retired for the night. It’s quiet and I can completely concentrate on my story. Sitting in my recliner in my cosy family room, with my dog sleeping beside me, the words finally fly from my fingertips.
    When do you find uninterrupted time to work on your writing? How do you keep yourself disciplined to get the job done? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Yes, I find late at night when I am most able to write. I really look forward to getting my little one into bed, so I can attack the laptop.
