Writing while working on a more than 40 hour work week can be hard, trust me it has impacted my blog more than it has anything else. I went from blogging once a week to maybe once every two weeks. Nothing has made more upset about the job I currently work more than the fact that it is impacting my ability to write.
While I could go on and on about how much I dislike what I do that is not writing that is not what this blog post is about. I am here to talk about what I do to combat the impact on my writing. The real question is: how do you write on a severe time constraint? That answer is not a simple one. What I do personally is I write a lot by hand to work on the projects that I have going. Transcribing those to electronic copies still takes me a long time but I get there eventually.
I have found that making “To-Do” lists get me going and help me get things done that need to be done. Crazy how writing things down on a piece of paper and physically checking them off really motivate you to get them done. Hopefully this advice has helped you or given you the inspiration needed to make a to-do list or something else that will help get the motivation juices flowing and that project that you are working on done.
