Fantastic Bit of Wisdom from Accents Publishing Senior Editor

With all the whining and time management talks Justin and Ryan have been giving on the podcast, this is a bit of a different perspective from Accents Publishing Senior Editor, and Amazing Writer Katerina Stoykova-Klemer.  Here is a portion of her essay specifically dealing with Time, but please check out the link at the bottom of the post to read the whole bit. It will open up a world of clarity.

Much thanks to Katerina Stoykova-Klemer for sharing this bit of authorial advice with the world at large.

Time – I wish I had an hour for every time I’ve heard someone say “I don’t have time to write.” Remember – having time doesn’t guarantee that you will actually write. It takes a real writer to stick with writing and persist with it amidst the multitude of her obligations. This is important, because if you don't write when you don't have time for it, you won't write when you do have time for it. Whether they realize it or not, when people say “I don’t have time for writing,” in many cases they actually mean “today I made choices for my time which left my mind and body with no power to sustain in me the desire to write.” My advice is to use the busy periods of your life as opportunities to develop your writer’s will and to strengthen your commitment to your art. In that way you will tremendously increase your chances for a productive creative life when your schedule does lighten up.
