Some people complain they don't have enough time to write. I hear you.
I used to complain about that, too. When I first started writing, I had two precious hours each weekday when both my children were at school. But I also knew there were parents who worked full time and fit in their writing either by waking at 4 a.m. or by staying up until midnight.
If you want to write, you make time.
You make it a priority.
Otherwise, you won't find time to write.
If you want to write, you sacrifice other things in your life to do so.
In my case, I gave up watching TV to try to squeeze more hours out of the day.
But I didn't give it up completely. Every few months I binge watch a series on Netflix or Amazon Instant Video for about a week.
Over the years that has meant Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Weeds, and a few others.
Recently I got hooked on Jessica Jones and have been binge watching her for the past week.
Two words for that show and character: Bad. Ass.
Do you binge watch shows?
Do you sacrifice for your writing?
PS Wondering how old is too old to wear a motorcycle jacket. Asking for a friend.
PPS I bought my first motorcycle jacket in 1988 on Melrose Avenue in L.A. and then my friends and I repeatedly ran over it with our cars so it wouldn't look so new and shiny.
