This month's question...
How do you find time to write in your busy day?
I don't. I don't write on the weekdays because my psychologist job takes too much out of me. Today I trained a new employee followed by seven straight psychotherapy clients, and combined with a workout, I barely have the energy to write a blog post, much less a book chapter!
But the weekends are another matter. I try to write a 4,000-word chapter each weekend. Therefore it takes me about 8 months to complete a novel. Some weekends I devote to other fun and enriching activities like travel.
Since I finished my latest novel SPIKED (Blocked #3) in late July, I've been chilling on the weekends. It's been low-key but also a tad boring. I'm jonesing to start writing a new project soon.
If you'd like to share a release post for Spiked on 10-1-16, please email me at jenniferlanebooks at gmail and I'll send you the html.
Happy writing! May we all eke out more time for our craft.
