words

I want to be a writer. I have other goals for my life but I know writing factors in somehow. The problem I'm facing is finding the time to write. I keep wanting to set aside a few hours each night, locked in my room with my computer so I can focus solely on cranking out the next literary masterpiece (no pressure or anything). Yet my schedule is busy and allotting that much time to writing doesn't seem all that realistic. So what's the solution? One word at a time. I read a blog the other day (the name of which escapes me) and the advice she gave was to keep a notepad with you (something I already do so I'm halfway there right off the bat) and whenever you have five minutes of free time, write. Write a sentence, paragraph - whatever - so long as you write. Take advantage of the time you do have to write instead of trying to make more time...and see what you come up with :-)
