Steal Writing Time When You Can

Though today I must be an author instead of a writer I managed to steal a few minutes to write.20160212_134842_resized

What I mean by ‘must be an author’ probably sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true. On days when I need to be at a bookstore or an event like I’m going to tonight, I don’t have much time to write. On those days its all about the business of being an author, not the luxury of being a writer.

So, for me sitting down at the Red Cup Cafe to write, eat my favorite honey walnut bran muffin and have a coffee in the sunshine is one of my fav things, even if all I have is just a little time. Even a few stolen minutes in a favorite writing place makes a difference. It’s like working out: some days I only have 20 minutes and others I have 2 hours, but those 20 minute intervals keep me in workout mode and keep me from feeling guilty and lethargic from lack of exercise. I was going to say those 20 minutes keep me ‘in shape’ but frankly, these days that’s debatable.

Anyway, We all have work or other disruptive influences in our lives, so steal writing time when and where you can.

    Every little bit counts. And too much time way from writing can be a problem. I lose focus.

    I like your Return to Sender mug.

      Same here, too much away time and my focus scatters. Yes, those mugs are great fun to have as gifts. Cheers, Mindy
