There is one rule that precedes all other writing rules: write every day. Unlike all other writing rules this one is not meant to be broken, stretched or bend.
Yet here I am after five days without writing.
I’ve thought about it, a lot actually. But outside of writing emails no word was put down, no sentence created, no story spun.
Yes, I’ve been preoccupied and distracted and didn’t have enough restful sleep. But that should never be an excuse or deterrent.
I did compose a haiku today. That required me to find out what they are and how they are composed. It was written per request and was well received by the requestor.
I’ve also done some copy writing at work this week. Which is better than nothing, I suppose.
But all other writing happened in my head, getting ready to come out.
Well, I am ready. I decided to start work on another novel. I read somewhere this week how important it is to get the first draft out. Only when it’s all out can you begin the real work, the hardest part.
There’s also a blog waiting to be written, but I need to do a little more reading first.
I only have three weeks left at work, 16 days including tomorrow. That is a good thing, because I have a lot of work ahead and my day job is a hindrance right now
A strange life that is, when you give up the job that allows you to make a living, so you might exchange it for the work that allows you to make a life.
