This post is geared mostly towards my fellow authors who also have full-time jobs. Time management is currently one of the biggest issues in my life, and I wonder how it affects others' writing.
A typical week:
Monday to Friday: work at school for 12+ hours/day. Come home do lesson plans/grading, gym, watch a show of TV or spend time with my fiancee and crash.
Saturday: shop, cook for the week, wedding planning
Sunday: church, cleaning, gym, blog.
So in all that time, where's my time to write? I've been working on edits in any "free time" I can grab. I personally haven't written a single sentence of my next book since summer vacation 2013.
And now we're thinking about kids after the wedding....
For February in particular, my drama program is presenting three separate productions in the next three weeks, while working on our next huge show in March.
How do others do it? Post below if you're a writer in a similar spot. I wish I had time, not just for marketing, blogging, spreading the word, etc- but for honest-to-goodness pure creative drafting. I know what I want to be writing, I just have no time to get there until the next summer break? How about you?
