That is a quote from Matrix Reloaded - or at least I think that it is. I don't have the time to watch the movie to check.
I also don't have the time to plant out the Sedum that I bought four weeks ago, read all the books that have now spilled from the shelves to the floor, do last year's tax return, plan a family holiday, patch and paint the wall from the renovations that I did over two years ago, finish the report that my boss is waiting for .... or write.
The list of things that I don't have time to do changes from month to month as some things eventually get done but writing always seems to come last. I have the same 24 hours in a day that everyone else does so the problem must be what I am doing with them. I must sleep a lot more than other people.
I have tried Nanowrimo, BIAW, setting aside one evening/week for writing, ten minutes a day on a kitchen timer but it just doesn't stick. Suggestions welcome.
I recently started a new job. In the first few weeks you have to give it 110 percent to build relationships with and the confidence of your colleagues so I knew that writing would take a back seat for a while - but that time is now over.
I am making an April resolution about writing. I am going to write something/anything - minimum 200 words/day .... starting Tuesday.
