It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another lesson. This week, we’re looking at how to deal with being busy.

I’ve gotten busy a lot lately. I was out of town for a single day, and then everything exploded. A good explosion, mind you.

I didn’t have time to write or edit on Sunday because everything happened. I know, I’m big on making time, but I have to admit, my mind was so out of it on Sunday. After all, my author interview did take up a lot of time.

Okay, so I’m totally making excuses. I know, I know, I’m being totally hypocritical. I could have made time to write on Sunday, but I didn’t.

So, what does making excuses have to do with being busy? A lot. We all have those days when we’re like, “Well, I want to write…but I’m so busy. I don’t have time.” I’ve had multiple times when that has happened. I don’t like it, but it does happen.

The big thing is just trying to get a few minutes in. Even if you just have five minutes to squeeze in, that’s five minutes of writing. Just that can make a big difference.

Try to make time to write if you want to write. Quit making excuses. Excuses do nothing but hold you down.
