But that doesn't mean I'm any less busy.
I'm in the International Baccalaureate program, which means I am basically committing academic suicide. I'm in grade eleven and have an average of four hours of homework every night, plus a constant, overwhelming flow of papers, essays, and orals, I spend about 10 hours at school every day, and I have to have at least 50 hours of each creative, active, and service extra curricular hours.
And let me tell you: it's really, really hard.
Finding time to write is pretty damn difficult.
Luckily for me, when I write, I write a lot. I once pounded out 25k words in three days, and if I was on a roll, I could probably do more. I don't really get to write during the week anymore; I write on weekends, sometimes; whenever I'm on a plane or a train; and very late on weeknights when I'm too stressed to sleep.
Does it work? Sort of. Do I need to work on it? Hell yes.
I can't really go into some detailed explanation of finding time, because at the moment, I haven't really, but all I can say is that if you want to write- if you really, truly want to write- you will find time, no matter how busy you think you are.
How do you find time to write?
