For years, I have struggled with the concept of making a schedule for writing. I’ve held onto the belief that I could not force myself to be creative on certain days and that I would write when I felt the creative urge. That all worked fine… for a while. But now, with a busy schedule full of baby planning, work, and school creativity took a back burner… so much of one that I haven’t even opened a story to write on in months.
I’ve finally decided it’s time to get serious about creativity. It’s no longer something I want do when I find time. It’s time to start making time for it. I have three weeks (including this one) left of this college course, then I’m taking the next two 8 week terms off for the little guy’s arrival. During the little bit of “down” time I have before he arrives, I am going to attempt to adhere to a creativity schedule (starting around July 1). I want to dedicate two evenings a week to some sort of creating (ideally writing) outside of blogging, in addition to a weekly blogging schedule.
This year is a year of change for me and I want to take advantage of that momentum to change my writing habits and become more productive. I have big plans for the upcoming year, and I’m ready to start working towards those goals.
