How to find time to write.

Lately people have been asking me how to find time to write. The answer is to turn off the television. Easier said than done. I love old movies and old sitcoms. I can waste an entire evening ( and still do) watching episodes of M*A*S*H. I have a special fondness for Rifleman too, if you can believe that.

Try to write for a while first, then reward yourself with your favorite activity. At the end of the day you'll have words on a page. Those words are what get you to the next words, and the next. Keep your butt in the chair and eventually you'll finish your article, story, book, whatever. So stand up, reach for the remote and shut it down.
