The last few weekends I have struggled not only to write posts for my blog, but also write my novel and do the essential reading. I’ve been having a social life, which is awesome, but the huge break in writing really slows me down.
I sat down today to continue on the novel writing and found that it took me almost an hour to write 500 words, half what I can usually manage. I picked up speed after that, but it’s a worry that only two days break from writing could slow me down that much. It makes me very concerned about what will happen when I return to work.
I’ve currently set out my writing schedule so that if I get a 9-5 job, I’ll still be able to get my writing in while keeping up with all the householderly duties. This past weekend has me doubting that I will be able to manage that however. Talk about burning the candle at both ends!
All you workers out there, how do you work around the miniscule hours left over for yourself to get time to write? I need some advice from the professionals!
