My Mama used to say, "There's no sense in worrying about things you can't change. It won't fix it." She was right, of course. While I haven't seen the progress I would have liked on my w-i-p, I'm continuing to work on it and I'm happy to say it's coming together. And, I have written an impressive number of reviews, articles, newsletters, and blog posts. I am writing. And writing is writing, right?
So this month, I'm celebrating my accomplishments and letting go of everything else. August was a great writing month for me, so here's to August. It was unbearably hot outside, but I cranked up the a/c in my office and smoked my computer keys. I'm back on track and sprinting toward the year-end finish line.
IWSG Question of the Month: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
There are way too many days that I don't . . . that's the sad truth of it. But I have come to accept it's all about priorities. Do I go out with friends tonight, or do I write? Do I go to bed at a reasonable hour, or do I write? We live life at a hectic pace nowadays, but our choices are still somewhat our own. I have found that writing in the evenings after everyone else goes to bed works best for me. The house is quiet, my work for the day is done, and I can finally turn my creativity lose to run amok. Hopefully, I capture some of it on paper.
