Finding the Time

Posted on Updated on

 

The Twilight Zone “Time Enough at Last” might have applied to last Wednesday’s message, but I found it applicable for this message too. Burgess Meredith plays Henry Bemis, a man who never had the time to do what he enjoyed until becoming the last man on earth.

 

I worked 32-48 hours a week, homeschooled two kids, maintained house, and wrote three novels. It wasn’t easy especially with fluctuating schedules, and the occasional sick child.
Throughout my hectic day, I somehow found time to write. I plugged along day-after-day, week-by-week for months until each novel came to life. Writing became my refuge amongst the chaos. I could mentally escape to other countries, create realistic characters, but [luckily] never ran out of ideas.
We all have busy lives. The point I’m trying to make is seek the time. It doesn’t matter if you can only dedicate a few minutes a day—in between classes, on a lunch break, or before going to bed. Jot down some words, and eventually you will  finish that novel.
I wish you the best of luck.
Take care, my friends. 🙂
