I have been neglecting my writing the past few years; now it's time to make it one of my top priorities. I love to write (and this blog has kept me doing it, thank goodness) but I wonder if other writers feel the same guilt I do about the time I spend staring at the computer screen or jotting in my notebooks when there is so much other stuff that needs to be done. I will need to find a way to block the whispers in my brain that say, "You need to be cleaning the house/weeding the garden/pricing things for the booths/painting that table/cooking/listing on eBay" and so on.
How do other writers do it? If you have a cure, I would be delighted to hear it. Perhaps I need to schedule a day a week for writing? Would I do it or would I put it off to do one of those things listed above? It's a challenge I need to take on.
I came home with three or four ideas and rough outlines for poems and stories. I have folders of stories and poems that need to be edited and refined. I have thousands of posts on this blog, and many of them could be compiled into a book. My columns for Two Lane Livin' are already pulled, edited and ready to be made into a book but I have stalled and procrastinated about completing the project. It's time to get moving again on the writing front.
Thank you, WV Writers, for providing the spark. Now I need to fan that flame and get it glowing again.
