Writing Time

I’m pretty lucky in terms of how much time I could potentially devote to my writing.  I work four days a week, I’m single and I don’t have kids.  So I don’t have the demands on my time that a lot of other writers do.  But I still struggle to make the time to write.  In my case, it’s a question of getting distracted, especially by the Internet.

My fellow Clarion Souther, Ben, has more serious demands on his time.  It’s a lot harder to make the time when you have to young children.  But he’s still managed to almost finish a new novel.

    I think your quality may beat my quantity Aidan – Fantasy Magazine publications, Locus reading recommendations, Hugo or Nebula short story nomination?

    Let’s not mention how I cheated and had time off work too…

    Not so sure about that.
    It was Lisa who was on the Locus list, not me.
    I’m on the Nebula suggested reading list, but that’s a big difference from being on the Nebula shortlist. Only takes one SFWA to recommend you to get on the suggested reading list.

    But I might change my opinion when I start reading some of those 145,000 words of yours. 🙂
