Great writers are different from you and me. They’re also different from each other. They vary in almost every way you can imagine, but they all get their writing done.
You may not aspire to greatness with your writing. It might be enough to write and publish a book and bumps up your fees and boosts your career. Even so, you still have to get your writing done.
There’s no right way to do it. You have to find a way that works for you and your situation.
I’m lucky. At this point in my life I can control my schedule and bend it to my work preferences. It hasn’t always been that way.
I wrote my first book while I worked full time at a demanding job. Most of my clients work full time and they find ways to get their writing done. So do writers with small children and caregiver responsibilities. We all find ways to get the writing done.
- Some get up early and some stay up late.
- Some write in the gaps in their workday.
- Some write every day and some write in bursts.
- Some go away and some just close the door.
Think of a way to get the writing done and there’s a writer out there making it work. That’s your challenge. Find the way that works for you, whatever situation you’re in. Then, get your writing done.
