I've written semi-seriously on an off since my teens and am now in my late twenties.
Nowadays I work a 9-5, have an 8-month pregnant wife (so baby due very soon now - and I get all the housework! ) It's hard enough to get out rock-climbing once a week or catch up with some mates.
I'm finding it increasingly hard to set aside time to write.
I've never been very good at snatching a few lines here and there - I much prefer to get in the zone and hammer out a chapter. I've been trying to jot a few bits down on my lunch break, or on the bus back from work - but it feels scrappy and disjointed.
In college, at Uni, even after - there was always time when I was on my own without distractions!
I can't be the only one to hit this wall. To grow into a life, and a family, and find something you love getting squeezed. Any helpful hints from the older crowd?
