it’s not a matter of finding time

I told the librarian that I published a book. She was suitably impressed. She congratulated me, and asked “When do you find time to write? Do you treat it like a second job and sit down for four hours a day?”

I do not. I can’t say i find time to write. I find time to write like I find time to pee.

I do it when I can, whenever and whereever I find myself.

I have learned to be organized about it, and what I need to write next. And to edit when editing is required.
But I do not treat it so preciously that I have to set aside time.

Maybe one day I will set aside time. But mostly, I just do it in between all the other things.
