#IWSG Finding Time to Write in a Busy Day

Welcome to September's Insecure Writer's Support Group. Join us at Alex Cavanaugh's BLOG.

This month's question...

How do you find time to write in your busy day?

My answer?

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.

Sounds like you have a schedule that works!

I imagine your job drains you on all levels.
I can help announce your next book!

Alex is right: counseling drains you in so many areas! Stick with the system if it works for you. I worked 24 of the weekend's 48, and I am still drained!

I can understand being wiped out after your day job. Sounds like you get a lot done on weekends, though. That's awesome.

You definitely deserve chillaxing weekends after finishing your series. I miss our chapter exchanges, though! I'm sure we'll be back at it soon. ;)
