As a long-time lurker, newbie poster, I’ve noticed that there are more than a few would-be writers among us Dopers, and probably a good few published authors as well. I just thought it would be nice to start a thread where we could encourage each other to keep going, share ideas and resources, and just generally help each other out. Apologies in advance if this has already been done to death in previous threads. I’ll start with what is probably a very common question:
In between working a 9-5 job and general daily responsibilities like families and friends, how on earth are you supposed to find the time to write? Seems like if I’m lucky enough to grab 3-4 free hours a day, I’m going to be writing for years before I get close to finishing a 400 page novel.
So published authors with day jobs, aspiring writers juggling life and writing, just where do you find the time?
