I Must Struggle to Write

I have written before about my irregular habit of posting for this blog, and my desire to do more. But, as I say in the title, I must struggle to write ... as in write more, and more regularly.

Great writers develop habits, like those listed here, and here. I need to make a habit of writing.

As with all things, the problem is time. I've written about time before too, though not in a way useful to this, but it is interesting. The problem is there's not enough time. Like most Americans today, I feel I barely have enough time to do what needs to be done to begin with. (And I'm told I need to accept this as "the new normal," which I refuse to do, but that's another post. Look, I'm ahead of the game already!)

What I need to do is start controlling and carving up my time in some sort of fairly organized fashion. Writing is work too. Treat it as such.
