Many writers with productivity problems have trouble with time. You must find time, protect it, and then use it well despite the competing pulls of other responsibilities, people, pleasures, and the complex workings of your mind. Every day, through conscious planning or by unconscious default, you prioritize your activities and make decisions about how to spend time.
It can be quite a challenge to determine how much time the writing portion of your life requires, and to incorporate that into a workable routine. It may require some maneuvering to insert regular blocks of writing time in your daily and weekly schedule, and even if you find the time you are still faced with the daunting task ofsticking to the schedule and actually writing something during the minutes or hours you’ve carved out.
