Finding time to write

How do you find time to write?

Romantic suspense author and NY Times bestselling novelist Allison Brennan (who at the time had four kids – she now has five!) used to write every day after working a full time job and putting the kids were in bed - from 9 to midnight. I believe a glass of wine was involved

When he was a defense attorney, NYT bestselling mystery writer Phil Margolin made a deal with his wife. He used to write from 7-11 on Saturdays and Sundays, and she agreed to keep the kids away.

And in this post , Jeff Abbott talks about how he used to write from 4-7 a.m. before going to his job at a startup.

I thinking I’m blanking out on how I used to write while working full time. I know it was rare for me to get more than two hours in. Sometimes it was a lot less. I wrote outside my kid’s mandolin lessons. I wrote when I came home from work. I wrote a little bit at lunch. I wrote every weekend. Eventually it all added up.

When do you/did you write?
