1. CREATE! Write, write, write, and then write some more
You’ve got a day job. Or, if you’re a full-time writer and you’re writing all day. Your product-creation time is limited. However, somehow you need to carve out two to three hours a day to write.
It isn’t easy. When I started to write novels, I had three small children, and a full-time job. I wrote late at night, or very early in the morning. Stop doing what someone else can do, and eliminate time-sinks, like social media.
One of my students wrote several nonfiction books in his lunch hour at work. Another writes during her daily commute on the train.
