Sometimes, with our busy schedules and hectic family lives, our best bet for achieving our dreams is getting up an hour earlier. It doesn't sound like much, but a single hour each day, times six days a week, can create some powerful personal progress as the years roll by. My girlfriend and I just agreed to get up at 6 am each morning to write, before our busy schedules can interfere. My day feels infinitely better when I've already got eight pages written and done by 9 am, rather than scrambling throughout the rest of my day trying to fit in time to write. Of course, everyone's situation is a little different, but if you're a writer struggling to find time to do your thing, perhaps getting up a little earlier is the answer. Personally, I recommend finding a writer friend on a similar schedule. It makes a big difference in the long haul, to have someone figuratively at your side, helping you to stay focused and keep sacrificing for your larger goals.
This entry is an example of some of the work I've posted on SixWordMemoirs.com. For any writers out there who feel like they have no time to polish their craft, this format is a useful option. This is even smaller than twitter's nano-fiction options (limited to 140 characters). Personally, when I'm neck deep in a novel, taking a step back to work on something as small as a six-word memoir or a flash fiction piece (under 1,000 words), is a pleasant change of pace.
