More Time Needed

November 3, 2010


Time management can be tricky at the best of times but with NaNo the segments of ‘free’ time to write are even more precious. I look to other writers – trying to look beyond the obvious and gleam an insight into their methods of finding time. There are numerous hints and tips to try but in the end you know your life and its limitations best. You may get up extra early, stay awake until the breaking dawn or cram a few paragraphs into your lunch hour – whatever works for you and your writing – is the right way to go.

I would like to share something I found by William Blake, written in his Auguries of Innocence.

To see a world in a grain of sand,

And a heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have eternity in an hour? Think how many stories could be written – absolutely wonderful.

Enjoy your writing time whenever and wherever that maybe.
