Last week I went to Idaho for four days to plot novels with some dear author friends. My trip included almost a full day of travel on both ends. Yet in the time I was gone I:
–wrote a column for an online magazine, Hope for Women
–wrote a blog post for MomLife Today
–worked on edits for my Amish novel
–worked on final edits for my WWII novel
–wrote a reader letter
–and read through galleys for a devotional book
It wasn’t a working trip, but I got a lot of work done. How?
I wrote on the flights.
I wrote at the airports.
I wrote while my friends napped.
I wrote during free afternoons.
It’s amazing how little snatches of time add up.
During my time away I still had tons of time for plotting, prayer and playing with my friends. Sometimes we think we need long stretches of time to get things done, but that’s not true. Every little bit counts and when you start using your “snatches” you’ll be amazed by what you can get done.
