Note 297 – Everyone’s talking about ‘writing time’

Everyone seems to be writing about ‘writing time’ at the moment, whether it’s having too much or not enough.

Note 274 – How being a ’30 minute’ writer works for me

  A writer friend and I were discussing how we squeeze writing into our busy lives.  She has recently learnt to do 20 minute short bursts of writing and although she was dubious of this method at first, it is working really well for her.  I told her that I’m more of a 30 minute writer as this (quite by … Continue reading

Note 155 – Putting the writing plan to the test

Yesterday I blogged about creating a writing plan that works. Today I have not only tested out the plan, but also discussed it with the family which includes my two young children.  They seemed to like the idea that if mummy starts to make more money in her new freelance writing career, she will be able to … Continue reading

Note 154 – Creating a writing plan that works

This week I began a six week freelance writing course with Daily Writing Tips http://www.dailywritingtips.com/ and one of the first tasks was to create a writing plan.  This couldn’t have come at a better time as I have been struggling to fit everything in.  Today I have been busy adding up the hours I spend on the different areas of my life, … Continue reading
