Roundup: Finding Time and Space to Write

As we look forward to updating the Ploughshares blog for the new year, we’re also looking back at all the great posts since the blog started in 2009.  Our roundups explore the archives and gather past posts around a certain theme to help you jump-start your week.  This week we have posts on finding time and space to write.

Some writers have the luxury of structuring their lives around writing, but most of us are juggling a combination of work, classes, family, and everyday tasks like laundry and taking out the garbage.  Our guest bloggers are here to help with advice on finding time and space to write.

  • If you prefer to listen to music while you write, you might appreciate Michael Klein’s post “Music to Write By.”
  • Finally, if you are someone who works best with a deadline, then you might be interested in National Novel Writing Month.  The challenge, to write 50,000 words in November, is a great excuse to sit down at your desk and work.
