Finding time to write can be tricky for most of us, especially if we lead busy lives with work and small children. This is how I found time to write even when I held down a full-time job, school and had a small child.
1. Download a writing tool to your phone (for example Word or a free app) and take your child outside in the stroller. Find a bench and sit down to write while you push the stroller back and forth.
2. Put on your child's favourite TV show and write for 15 minutes. Repeat once a day.
3. Get up a little bit earlier and write before you need to get ready for work/school.
4. Use 15 minutes of your lunch break to write.
5. If you're a night owl, go to bed a little bit later to write.
6. While on your commute to work/school: write.
7. Keep a notebook and pen in your pocket and write down things for your book throughout the day.
8. Download a writing app onto your phone and write down things for your book throughout the day.
9. Set the alarm on your phone and write when the bell rings.
10. Cook a quick meal, so you get more time to write.
11. Watch less TV, so you get more time to write.
12. Get off a stop earlier on your commute home and write on your phone while walking.
13. Write on your phone or in your notebook while you're waiting in a queue.
14. Write while you wait in a phone queue.
15. Go on a holiday to write.
Even if you only get 15 minutes to write every day, be happy and content with it. I know a few people who have managed to finish a whole book by writing only 15 minutes a day, so if you can get that be proud of your efforts! Wishing you all the best of luck and please share which techniques you use to find time to write every day.
