I also read two writing books by Libbie Hawker: Take Off Your Pants!, which was about outlining, which helped me think about my story in a different way that’s helping me scoot along, and Making It In Historical Fiction.
It’s not time to write that eludes me, it’s me wasting time while I’m supposed to be writing. Since I was in utero, I’ve been a night owl, so I tend to write more at night, though I’ve been trying to change that to writing more in daytime when I can.
But in and among work, family, friends, reading other peoples’ books, the odd TV show, and the shiny lights of the Internet, I write better when I know I can’t be on the computer for an extended period of time. So if I’ll only have an hour that day that I’ll be home and able to write, then that’s when writing needs to happen–and that’s when the Internet needs to be shut off!
