One of my goals for this year was to write more on this blog. However, I sometimes find myself getting caught in a tide of work and suddenly, I haven’t written for about a month.
With my final exams approaching next month, I have been a bit busy revising (24/7). Even at this moment, my mind keeps wandering to all the things I still need to study, and my revision plan keeps reminding me that I hadn’t set aside any time to write today. Or any days in the past month. I just can’t seem to make time for it, amidst studying five different subjects and trying to remember two years’ worth of information. I know I won’t be able to remember everything, and that isn’t my aim. But I often end up spending too much time on one subject trying to get things just right (I’m also a slow reader, which doesn’t help in subjects like History). So, at the end of the day, I end up having no time to write.
My point is – how do you make sure to write regularly? How do you balance your work and writing?
Now… back to revision.

This happens to me quite often! I think the best way to deal with this is to simply process your thoughts, or sometimes it’s always relaxing if you start writing notes on your phone, even if it’s just simple phrases or words, especially in between tasks! It takes a couple of seconds and will really change your mood.
I’m glad I’m not the only one! As an aspiring writer I get quite flustered if I don’t write as regularly as I should… But that’s a good idea, to take time between tasks and write on my phone if I have to 🙂 And that way I won’t lose any random ideas like I tend to do sometimes 😛
