Recently I have had a few people express to me their confusion over the lack of posts regarding writing. I surprised myself when I could not offer up a good enough excuse as to why I have avoided the topic. As a result of these conversations I plan to make frequent posts about writing fiction. Here is the first of such posts:
When people find out that I am a writer as well as stay-at-home-mom the next phrase is almost always about how they too have wanted to write, but could never find the time to get started. I can totally relate to this because when I started, "Alien Line" I was a full-time college student as well as full-time mom. After sometimes going weeks without working on the manuscript I committed myself to, at the very least, reading it over for a minimum of twenty minutes a day. Now think about this. How many of you find time in each day to watch a thirty minute program? Replace that television time with writing. If you don't have twenty or thirty minutes find at least ten. There is nothing wrong with scheduling short burst of times for your passion(s).
