How author Haley Fisher finds the time to write...

  The honest answer? I write when I’m really supposed to be doing other things… Not the best plan, I know, but that’s seemingly when I’m always the most inspired. Somehow, in my head, my brain interprets, “I really need to get (insert other thing here) done” into “OMG, I just had the best plot idea”. So normally whatever I’m supposed to do get pushed off to the side for minute so I don’t forget whatever I came up with for my story.
  Truthfully, for me, writing time is hard to come by. Not only because the world we live in is so busy, but because I do so many things. I am a student, a church volunteer, a babysitter, an employee, and then of course a friend, family member, and avid reader/TV watcher. It’s difficult to do all those things fully while also having plenty of time to write. Most of the time, I find the time to write in my in-between moments. Sometimes during a classroom lecture. Sometimes on breaks at work. Sometimes while watching a show or movie I already know and love enough that my attention can be divided. Between classes. Really late at night. Those are my writing times. I have a hard time carving a chunk out of the middle of my days just to write. But sometimes I manage that, too.
  Overall, I write when I’m inspired. At those times it isn’t so much finding time to write as making time. If I really want to write, then I write. If it’s ten minutes, or two hours, I write. When there is a sudden scene that I can’t wait to get on paper, I drop whatever I’m doing, and I write. That is pretty much the only writing schedule I go by. Now that it’s summer break, I should have much more time to work on scenes and chapters throughout the middle of the day rather than worrying about it keeping from doing more necessary things like homework.
  Hopefully someday I’ll have the time—without school or babysitting—to just spend days and days jumping from restaurant to coffee shop to park so I can write to my heart’s content, maybe getting a story finished every six or seven months. For now, I have to work around everything else I’ve got in my life. And while it’s working, it isn’t easy.


About the author: Haley Fisher

 I'm Haley Fisher, a college student in Kansas, and I've just signed a contract with a company called Silver Tongue Press to publish my first book!
 For as long as I can remember I've been an avid reader and an aspiring writer, but the step toward actually getting a book published is an enormous one for me. This is a big deal. And, as I've been told, the next step to being successful is getting the word out that my book exists.
 So, though it's not in print yet—it's coming out February 14th—I'd love for people to keep an eye out for Rising Calm. It'll be the first in a series of books about a young girl who finds out her life and her fate are far bigger than she ever realized. At the risk of giving too much away, the most I can tell you for now is that there is magic, prophecy, new worlds, and a cast of characters who I love to write.
