Hello, Loyal Readers!
In my new role as a half-time author, I find myself struggling with crippling self doubt. Did I say “crippling self doubt” again? Dammit, my therapist is gonna kill me.
I’ve been feeling some guilt because I FEEL I haven’t been writing as much as I should. We all have other obligations in life, but I guess I just feel like I should be doing more. On days that I don’t work, I get in about 3-5 hours of good writing. I’d like to push it to six, especially since I usually work 4 or more days a week.
Everybody’s got their own process, and they’ve all got their own idea about how much time one should spend writing. I’ve seen. Of course I know there are the purists who say, “Forty hours a week, period. Anything less is part time!” Then there are the liars, who say “Ten hours a day, easy!” When anyone who has a full time job will tell you they don’t spend all 8 of the hours in their day working.
But let’s put it out there:
Full or Part time, how many hours do you write? What helps you manage your time? When do you consider yourself productive?
