Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t worked like you wanted to this week. Writing has it’s own ebb and flow–it’s own demands. Each work you begin, each work you end will have its own personality. It’s own process as you embark on the journey to hew out the story from the landscape of your imagination.
It’s a process. Becoming the writer that you want to be is a process. Don’t be discouraged by the small starts. The longest novel is still written one letter at a time.
Summer offers me extra time to work on new things, but not always the time the to finish them. Some of those lazy summer days afford me time to daydream, planning and even freewrite! But the Fall? The Fall allows me time to go ahead and reach into that growing drawer of creativity to decide what to work on next!
On those long Fall nights, I have the chance to rework and revise. Fall allows me the thing I may not often have: time. As my kids fall back into their routines, I conform the writing schedule around the turning of seasons.
Master your time, create your day, and keep writing!
With Love & Ink,
*Remember it is Back To Writing Month on The Writers’ Block Podcast. You will be able to get the encouragement that you need to pick up the very work you forgot!
Writing is more than words on a page! It is more than buying pens and notebooks! Writing involves work, dear ones! Part of that is research. Which means what? Say it all together: READ!
Most writers start of as readers, or in some way fascinated by language. Reading, feeding your curiosity to the point of frenzy, is the best way to keep your mind sharp. To expand your imagination’s boundaries.
