Time Management for Authors: #MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge, Week 36 — 8 Comments

  1. good point that writing isn’t always about our books. These days blogs, marketing stuff, proofreading two releases takes precedence over putting words to paper on a new project.

  2. I completely agree. It’s much easier to manage time for actual writing when you don’t have all the other stuff that also needs to be done!

  3. Congrats on your upcoming release! I think if I had deadlines to meet that would greatly effect my approach to writing, but since I’m an Indie author my only deadlines are ones I set for myself and well I let those go all the time.

  4. I’m Indie also, Meka, and the deadline is for editing. I have a messy, layered process and I’m never finished until it goes out the door to the editor. And then based on her comments, I’ll have more work to do later!

  5. All the other things that go along with writing the book is so time-consuming. I agree with your comment about “it’s never finished until it goes out the door to the editor.” That’s when I can breathe. Until then, to me, it’s like running a race, but you have to stop every now and then to take care of something else. Then jump back in the race! Congrats on your upcoming book!
