It's funny how much I've been able to accomplish over the last several weeks, even without giving up other commitments. Sure, I haven't played video games or watched TV as much as I used to, but other than that, I've still been able to have fun. And with my wife, no less!
Something my friend Aaron Ritchey said at the conference really stood out to me (and I'm paraphrasing here): if the amount of free time I have is more time than it takes to boot up my computer, I'm going to sit down and work.
That's how I've made time to write. Any time I that I have ten minutes or more (because I'm not going to boot up my computer for less than five minutes writing), I sit down to work on my book.
Okay, in all honesty, I'm not NEARLY that efficient with my time, but I'm getting much better than I used to be. Remember, we all need to spend some time to rest, but if you spend an extra twenty minutes a day writing that you would otherwise spend flipping through the news, goofing off, or anything else that takes away from your writing time, then you could add almost two and a half hours a week to your schedule!
So what about all of you? What have you given up in order to make more time to write?
