Writing is done in the time we make, not the time we find.

~Amy Sue Nathan

I teach my students that writing isn’t about inspiration, it’s about sitting down and doing.  I often have no idea what I’m going to put on a page until I sit down with the intent to get 500 words today, or whatever.  Then I’ll hear the voice of a character, tune in, and record the conversation.   Identifying even snippets of time to focus on writing makes a difference.  Sometimes those are otherwise lost moments, that become significant because of the writing that happened in those moments.

What do you think?  Do you find time or make time for your writing?
