Time and inclination

It's finding time to write that's the hardest thing and when you do, you struggle to get anything down. Establishing a routine is one way to make the flip quicker. Try out different things, or just sit and do nothing even if it takes up the whole time. Like brushing your teeth before bed, eventually you'll train your body and mind into writing.
