Throughout my many years as a writer, I have heard every excuse in the book. One of the most common is “I don’t have time to write.” This excuse is not spoken exactly in those words. It usually sounds more like, “When my children are grown, I’ll write”, or “When I retire, I’ll write”, or “When (fill in the blanks) happens, I’ll write.”
Every time I hear this excuse, I think, This person is not serious about writing.
You see, the truth is that we will devote our time to what is truly important to us. If writing is important to you, you will write.
We do not “find” time to write; we “make” time to write.
