Gasp! I Don’t Write Everyday!
I learned a lot about myself and writing in 2013, but like everything else in life–I keep learning.
I cannot write everyday.
I know, gasp. Some writers think this is a bad, bad thing. Me? I’m embracing this part of myself.
Even when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about my story. It’s how I work it all out. Some writers outline, creating a rough draft before the rough draft. I think it all through first. I get my brain and my heart invested in the story and my characters until I can begin putting words to paper.
With my latest WIP, I first came up with the idea and wrote two chapters. Since then, I’ve been trying to piece together all the parts and working on research. I’m about a week away from pounding the keys again. Until then, I’m doing my own kind of outlining.
