Here are two wonderful bits of propaganda currently circulating on F*cebook....
I'm working full time again and have quite a long commute so I'm now working on my novel when I can using a folding keyboard and my Iphone, primarily on the train.
Writing is a bit of a chore for me, but I'm determined to finish it. Last November I got just over 50,000 words done (during the Nanowrimo writing marathon) however I didn't work on it at all after that for a long time. Then, I only worked 20 hours a week so I had more time to write.
I've realized I can't wait until I have a huge chunk of free time to write, I have to do it when and where I can. Even if it takes 5 years, in 5 years I'll have a book.
Case in point, J.K. Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book during naptimes as a welfare mother. Amazing.
This isn't just for writing of course. 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there on a project eventually yields results.
