How it’s done…scheduling secrets

Posted on March 29, 2012


I’ve been so lax about keeping up on my blog. I have been behind about a lot of things lately. Most definitely I am behind in my writing. I have three front running projects that are screaming for my attention. Primarily there is the next book in my Four Horsemen series that is hunting me, literally. The villain in the story has crept into my dreams and I can tell you, it’s almost as bad as having Freddy Krueger as my sandman…unfortunately my time on the computer has been so very limited that even blogging is a challenge.

The other two ideas are not quite as loud in my head but they are still requesting my attention.

If anyone has discovered the secret to time juggling, would you please pass it my way? I need to figure this out. I don’t know how my fellow authors juggle full time jobs, families and other responsibilities and still find time to churn out novels. I have been spoiled to being allowed to write ten hours a day focussing strictly on my career. Now with a 10 to 12 hour day job, housework after, paying bills, trying to spend time with my daughter, friends it eats up my life.

I have always admired those that have a successful writing career while being able to maintain day jobs, families and other responsibilities, but I never realized how truly difficult it was. HOW do you pull it off? Do you ever sleep? Please pass on your helpful hints, tips and techniques. I’m sure I’m not the only one that could use some help.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!Thanks for reading!
