“Ugh, another post about managing my time.”
I know. I get it. No matter where you look, you're bound to find a blog post, video, ebook, etc. that's all too eager to sell you the NUMBER ONE TIME TIP THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER. You know, the tip that will magically give you more hours in the day, make you more motivated, and turn you into a writing machine.
I don’t have that tip, but mostly because that tip doesn’t exist. I’ve certainly been a proponent of certain time-saving and time-maximizing tips in the past (Have I told you how much I love my daily writing routine?), but let’s get this straight: there is no magical time-saving tip that will work for every human being.
Time is constant. Life is not.
Our lives are ever changing, and we're all different anyhow. That means certain tips, techniques, and tutorials are going to work brilliantly for some people while dragging others down.
That’s why this post is not going to try to convince you of some perfect ~magical~ technique for making the most of your time. I do, however, believe that recognizing, managing, and maximizing your time as a writer is possible, which is exactly what this post is all about.
