My wife asked me a few nights ago, “What are you going to do for two to three hours every evening when you graduate and don’t have master’s work to do any more?”
You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to write!
Doing master’s work has benefited me in a lot of ways, but one of those ways is that it’s taught me some discipline in use of my time. I have to block out time to get things done, and focus on working efficiently. When I can put that discipline and energy to my writing on a consistent basis, that’ll be awesome.
So here’s a question worth considering – what’s getting in the way of your time for writing? What are you prioritizing in your time? Is it something you can put at a lower priority? Is it something that will go away later on? Take the discipline you have at focusing on one activity and see if you can turn it to your writing.
