“The Best Laid Schemes…”

Robert Burns inspired many vernacular writers ...

Seems as though there are many writer folks these days who are faced with the same dilemma of just how best to plan and schedule their “writing time” so it will  satisfactorily work into the remainder of their daily lives. I suppose all writers have been faced with this very thing since writing began, and I would imagine that what works for one writer might not necessarily work for another.

Recently, I’ve read some blog posts regarding this very subject, and I come away from each with the realization that we’re all in this together! When poet Robert Burns wrote so very long ago about “the best laid schemes of mice and men” and how they often don’t work out as planned, is so very true when it comes to homing in on a workable and productive writing schedule.

Seems as though as soon as we settle in at our writing desk, fingers perched deftly on the MacBook, something invariably alters the course of the plan—the phone rings, the wife beckons, the wash needs changed, etc., causing any cogent thoughts to basically be washed away and any inspiration that had coursed its way to the fore becomes nothing but a speck in the wind!

One interesting take on this subject came from a blog I enjoy  appropriately named Writing Fiction Blog. I have posted it on this site to share because I find it timely and a prime example of how many of us battle the time factor. I’m always open for ideas and suggestions and would encourage any from readers. Leave them in the comments area. In the meantime, it’s time to get on with writing!…CortlandWriter
