I actually did make up a schedule, but I think I was overly optimistic... I'm lucky if I get a third to one-half the time that I schedule for writing. Better than nothing!

3. Word list poem The tangled nest of the red-breasted robin Glows warmly in the early morning light. A bowl of amber viewed from my window Back-lit from a distant golden sun so bright. Chicks peek out from crescent-shaped gaps in their bedding Eagerly waiting their chance to begin their first fligh...

Mine are split about 50-50, rejection vs no response. Finally got my first article published in a local weekly newspaper last September, but no acceptances on any of my magazine submissions so far. :cry: Still puttin' the queries out there, but with each passing week it gets harder and harder to hol...

Yes, Welcome! So... what are your writing goals? Change "Hope" to "Plan" for your writing time, and you'll have pages before you know it. I finally had to put my daily schedule down in black in white before I was able to carve out some time in the week for my writing. Best of luck to you - we're all...

Carving out Time

Hi all, I'm looking for ideas on how those that work full time outside the home manage to carve out time for your writing and not procrastinate. It's all I can do to grab an hour or two here and there sometimes, and yet when I get a windfall of time (like a whole Saturday afternoon - rare!) I end up...
