Want more time for writing?
Stop doing other stuff.
Nearly everyone suggest that you can write more by sleeping less. In a society of sleep-deprived zombies, it’s the dumbest advice there is.
We have no choice: if we want to add something to a full schedule, we need to remove something to make room for it. Continuing to pretend we can defy the laws of physics is a losing battle.
I have a dear friend who is a marvelous musician. We love to play music together. Thing is, he is genuinely too busy to play very often.
He has two choices: give up something else, or don’t play as often as he’d like.
He’s a rare instance of someone whose life is filled with things more important than his hobby. He’s made the conscious choice to appreciate all the things he does have in his life, and be patient about his music.
It’s a simple binary equation: either writing is more important than something you’re already doing, or it’s not. Either way, there’s your time for writing.
Easy? Nope. Simple doesn’t mean easy.
