Writers – How do you find the time to write?

For those of you who are new here and don’t know me, I’m T. J. Blake, a psychological, thriller, horror and mystery author. I’m also a full time content marketing executive at a Digital Marketing & UX agency, and the founder of the writing agency, TJ Creative. So, with these two commitments alone, this is most of my time taken up.

With my commitment to the two marketing agencies, it leaves me with hardly any time to work on my author profile and write my books. It’s been two years since the release of my last book, Deception: A Love of Lies, and it could be some time yet until my next novel is released. I’m pleased to say that I have been working on my book ideas when time allows over the two years, and now that I’ve decided on which of my ideas I want to start writing as my next novel, I can now get to work on developing the plot. I am yet to start the thorough planning (same problem as normal – lack of time).

After Deception, I knew that I needed a break from writing just to promote it. Alongside promotional work, I decided to focus on a new journey by starting my own writing agency. But with quite a sudden growth in client numbers over the first year, I now find myself in a situation where my “spare” time from full time work is being taken up by TJ Creative, leaving myself short on time for author work. It’s great to have grown this little writing agency, but equally I want more time for author work – especially when I have a new story and plot playing on my mind!

Anyway, back to the point – I’d love to hear from you if you’ve gone through this journey before and how you overcame it. Equally, get in touch if you’re in the same situation as me. It might be useful for us to chat and see if we can help each other to get through this dry writing spell!

I look forward to hearing from you!
