Episode #51 – Bite #19, A Writing Schedule

Michael Hyatt, author, speaker, and business coach, says, “What gets scheduled gets done.” It works for business, and it works for writing too.

This week’s writing tip comes from Bite #19 of Eating and Elephant: Write Your Life One Bite at a Time“A Writing Schedule.”

We look at the importance of scheduling time to write and several approaches to doing so.

With all the writing you do, remember, the only way to do this wrong is to not do it at all!

Happy writing, everyone.

I watched my first vblog and earlier today participated in my first writers class in The Villages. Thoroughly enjoyed both and learned much. I’m going to schedule Monday morning’s between 9-10 am. Let’s see how it goes. Thank you and see you next week.

I write everything I do in my calendar book each day. It works well for me. I do not schedule my writing in advance. I come to my writing sanctuary each morning at around eleven and spend hours writing. Writing is my passion, and I dedicate as much time as I can to it unless an emergency calls me away from my desk.
One thing I want to add to what Patricia so generously offered as a helping tool to all Life writers is that you must commit yourself to the craft of writing to achieve your ultimate goal.

Nice. Great idea scheduling.

I have a note on the top of my computer that says, “I am the one who creates my own calendar”

So now I will add a block-out time to Holly’s calendar for Holly to write.

Thank you for helping ME realize to put myself on my own calendar.

Thanks for adding your comment, Holly. I feel your words, added to Patricia’s, as inspiration flowing over me. All I have to do is grab on, pull up a seat for myself on the flowing timeline and believe 🙂
