Following is my progress in my ongoing struggle to find time to write.

Last Thursday, I had slotted two hours to write, but only managed to get in an hour -- which I was grateful for.

Last Friday, I didn't write anything. I was a little down on myself for a whole lot of reasons, and played hooky. One productive thing I did do was work out. I planned to make up that time this weekend, but never got around to it. With the upcoming 4th of July holiday coming up, I had to clean house in preparation for guests this week.

This brings me to today (Monday, July 1st). I managed to get in 40 minutes -- so am back on track. Remember, my goal is just a half hour per day.

Takeaways so far . . .

No wonder I couldn't get in three or four hours of writing per day, I've been hard pressed to do a half hour per day since I started this "finding time to write" quest.

I find that I don't want to write most days. I don't know if it's because it's summer and I'm unmotivated or what, but I thought the reason I wasn't writing as much was because I didn't have time. I've discovered that that's not the case; I simply don't feel like writing most days.

This means that sticking to my "half hour per day" is even more important. Opening the book file and getting started is the hardest part, which means I'm gonna push the writing to the first part of the day instead of leaving it to the middle or end. I'm much more likely to do it if I make this switch.

How's your writing schedule coming along? Are you finding (enough) time to write? If not, why?
