Life... it's about time. And lately I'm finding I don't have enough, but the irony is since I have ABSOLUTELY no time, I'm writing more. It's kind of a phenomenon. I don't pretend to understand it, but in 2010 I worked full time. Some weeks I worked way over 40 hours, because I had more to do than I could get done in the normal day. I wrote 2.5 books that year. In 2011 I quit my day job, because we moved to Wisconsin. I didn't start working until July, and when I did start working again it was part time. I didn't accomplish anything the whole year except being depressed and mad at the world.
I felt that lack of motivation pour over into 2012, and I couldn't allow it. So I decided to take a class, because it would force me to write. It did. But before my baby was born when I really should have had a lot of time, I'd written only 19 pages in 5 weeks. Since my baby came home, and I have NO time (seriously none at all) I've written 28 pages. I have to steal minutes to do it. Let my husband take care of the baby for a couple of hours while he's home on the weekend. Use her nap time. I don't get more than an hour at a time. I don't get an hour every day, and still I'm being more productive.
But other writers have told me they got more writing done while they were working a day job. I just want to know what about you? Do you work a day job and still get a lot of writing done? Do you not work and get a lot of writing done? Do you write more when you have more time or does it go the other way?
