Where did all the time go?

Well, I can now same I'm officially a uni student (I'd forgotten how nervous and excited orientation makes one... after all, it's a new place where I know absolutely no one)

So, my three days of uni combined with four days of work equals seven days... and if I'm not mistaken, aren't there only seven days in the week? This got me thinking of how unorganised I've been. Lets face it, I don't really have a schedule which I keep my writing to. I usually write when I feel like writing.

Hey, I work best under what is known as organised chaos... if I try tidying my workspace just a little bit then I won't know where anything is anymore because they will be... what's the words... oh, put away in the actual place they belong.

Now with a little bit more on my plate (well, actually a lot more, but I'm trying to keep a positive outlook on things) I decided that it's time to put a little bit more organisation into my life so that I will actually finish something.

How does everyone else handle life when things keep piling up? Is it better to set up a schedule and put some organisation into your day, or do you still write better when you let things just come naturally without limiting it to a time of day?

We always end up doing our writing in the wee hours of the night, but we have lots of friends who wake up first thing in the morning. Just find a time that works with you and stick with it. Even if it's just an hour a day! Sometimes the busier I am the more productive I become. Weird, but true.

If I waited for an ideal schedule, I would never writer. I write whenever, wherever. With three kids and a full time job, I learned to be flexible. My best time for writing is during my lunch hour at work. I disappear into a nearby deli, eat a quick bite, and just write.

I think the older one gets, the more things tend to pile up. Just make writing a priority. Easier said than done, but there you have it.

Congrats on being a uni student! Sounds like a whole new world opening up for you!
