As I go through the Writer’s Boot Camp I’ve found some days are easier to accomplish than others. It isn’t a matter of getting up early enough. Surprisingly I haven’t had a problem with the rising early enough to get it accomplished, however, there are other things that are more difficult.
Yesterday was one of those days. It wanted me to write just a few sentences even when it wasn’t my prime writing time. Basically, I was meant to learn to write through distractions. While it should have been an easy enough lesson to learn I failed miserably. Not because there was any one thing to stop me, but because I allowed myself to be distracted.
That will be the hardest part of getting back into writing. I’ve got to learn to quit procrastinating and to get my work done. It isn’t for a lack of ideas, but it has been so long since I’ve written that it has become harder to get started once more. That is something I know and yet I allowed the whole saying it’s okay to take a break between books to go on too long.
I will get back to getting my own work done and writing once more. That I promise myself and my readers. At this rate, though, I’ll be writing another horror instead of working on the fantasy novel I’m wanting to finish the second draft to in a few months.
As my oldest grandson is awake for the day, I must head off here and watch him while his mother sleeps. So off to get some things done.
Remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
