Follow Julia Vee, Writes At Night on


Trying to squeeze in more writing time? Me too!

Hi, I’m Julia Vee, aspiring author.  Welcome to my writing blog. It’s a place for you to find great tools and resources to keep you writing, no matter what else is going on in your life.

I’m a full time working parent. Both my kids play sports and have tough schedules. I work a second job lecturing at a night school. So I could easily say that I am “too busy” to write my novel. And I did…for decades.

But I had written for my professional blog for over a decade and knew that I had always managed to generate writing content for about 3-4 hours per month. What if I could find a few more hours a week to write?  And what if I could do it consistently?

I started as a way to share all the writing and publishing resources I had come across in preparing for NaNoWriMo. (Yes, I made my 50k words in November.) So I got the writing time in, some 5-8 hours per week to get it done. And I did it the ugly way. Dishes didn’t get done. Laundry didn’t get folded. I knew there had to be a better way. So my goal is to keep writing, write faster and share what I’ve learned with you.

Join me on this journey as I share Monday Motivations to keep you writing during the week, the occasional tech tip, and reviews of writing resources.
