In many ways, one would think that the weekends would be a great time to get some writing done. Am I right?
In reality, I find that weekends are almost the worst as far as available time. Being a husband and a parent is my first priority at this stage of the game. As such, my time is pretty much never my own. So does that mean I don’t get any writing done on weekends? Usually I don’t, it’s true, but I have been thinking about ways to change that. I have a few thoughts:
- Sprints – I use Write Or Die 2 to try and force myself to get words on a page in a set time frame.
- Headphones – Strap them on your head, put on some music, ignore the noise, and try and get a good 5-10 minute sprint done.
- Bathroom Breaks – Seriously no, but maybe it would work for someone. Mobile devices being as they are, perhaps a little writing could happen whilst one is … never mind. Use this method at your own discretion.
- Bed time – Grab 10 minutes just before bed. A laptop in bed works so long as your significant other doesn’t object to the tapping and the light.
Anyone else have suggestions?
