Create Space

Finding uninterrupted time to sit down and write to meet your writing goals is a challenge faced by many writers’ most especially when you have a full-time job coupled with managing your family and other demands in-between.

Lack of time is one of the reasons why some wait till November’s’ NaNoWriMo to tackle that novel that they have in mind and possibly take some time off work to do so.

You need not wait till a certain time of the year to start working on those writing projects of yours. You could try the simple step-by-step way to write a novel now.

Increase Word Count

You can work on your book all year round and increase your word count through simple methods such as using your phone. Set a target to clock in an average of 500 – 1,000 words counts daily and increase them when you have ample time.

Today’s phones come equipped with an audio voice recorder that can serve you while on the go. Brainstorm, dictate your book on your phone – with your Bluetooth (because you are unable to stop to write lengthy sentences).

During those little pockets of time that you have every given day; while on transit, traipsing down the shopping aisle, try to capture those random fictional thoughts, dialogues, descriptions et cetera that pop into your mind before your muse chooses to run off and hibernate.

You would be delighted to realise how much you were able to meet when you transcribe and edit your sessions later. Besides, to transcribe our spoken word is far easier than to find the time to sit and craft a whole plot.

    Thank you for these very helpful tips for Writers. We all lead such busy, busy lives, there’s never enough hours in the day to accomplish what we set out to do. I attended a couple of Writers-In-Residence Workshops offered by my local Library. Published Writer, Krista Foss gave us great insight to what a writer must do in order to attain personal writing goals. Self discipline is the order of the day. As you mentioned, Technology is a definite asset, we should use to our full advantage. Half an hour every day, I set the timer on my phone and write until it goes off. Half an hour speeds by very quickly when one is writing, I wish it was the same way at work!! Thank you!

      Discipline, discipline, discipline. We need them in spades along with time. To be a writer is not as glamorous or as easy as people may think and I keep searching for ways to make it easier and efficient. Thank you for taking the time to read. I appreciate that 🙂

    I hadn’t though of using my phone as a voice recorder. I’ll have a look and see if my phone can do it. I do use my iPad and a small portable keyboard for writing when I’m out and about. (In fact, it’s what I’m using now!) It seems to work pretty well.
