People have asked me why I chose the name, Writing Under Fire, for my blog. Many times, finding the time to write is near impossible with my busy life. Therefore, even though writing is my passion, I must put my “feet to the fire” and force myself not to let distractions like, eating, sleeping, working my day job, cleaning house, cooking (trust me, nobody want me to do that.) Who needs that stuff anyhow?
Are you burning the candle at both ends?
Writers, do you struggle to find the time to write? What is your secret to keep you writing? Do have a dedicated time every day to write? Do you scratch out words sitting in your car to pick up kids from school, or sitting on a bench during your child’s soccer practice?
Or if you are an avid reader, do you skip other essentials in order to read? I’d love to hear from you.

It’s a great blog name! Writing is never easy with so many distractions in the day. At the moment, what works for me is just carrying a small notebook in my handbag and I write down little bits and pieces as they come to me. Sometimes it might just be a funny sentence I heard someone say. Other times little things I notice around me. Seems to help with keeping the creative thoughts coming later on!
Thank you for your reply. I also keep a small notepad in my purse. I write down favorite words or phrases, or character names.
