Finding Time to Write
By Adam Huddleston
One of the greatest barriers to an author is finding an appropriate time and place to write. Our busy lives have us running all over creation running errands and seeing to the minutia of life. Some writers require peace and quiet in order to crate. Others can happily type away while the Apocalypse is happening all around them.
I’ve always felt deep inside that I leaned toward the former requirement. I tend to be distracted rather easily and usually need quiet in order to write. However, having a full-time job and being the father of five makes that extremely difficult. Fortunately, since I basically stare at a computer monitor all day in the pharmacy, I am able to find time every once in awhile to jot down a few lines in Google docs. From there, I can send them to myself or print them out if they’re complete.
It may sound cliché, but every writer must find what environment works best for them. I hope this blog helps in some small way.
