Thank you, sweet writing friends, for sharing your hearts and a peek into your writing world.
The one emotion I felt as I read each one of your comments was that “We are not alone.”
And for a commitment (writing) that takes so much “alone time” it felt good to know we have fellow writers who struggle with the same issues and find joy in the same places as we do.
So now, I want to ask each one of you (as I ask myself), what is the next step you will take to move forward in your writing?
Let’s all just reevaluate where we said we are:
Option A: How many of you have empty hours of time to write each day?
Option B: How many of you have action packed schedules with homeschooling kids, working at a day (or night) job, or other huge responsibilities and have to be creative about carving out time to write?
Option C: How many of you aren’t really writing at all right now because you have so many other important commitments but you like to keep your “toe in the water” so to speak in the world of writing so if you do find time to write (or the muse strikes you) you can pick up your pen and write?
If you’re right in the place you want to be right now with your writing, do you have a tip you’d like to share for how you manage your time and stay motivated?
And if you’d like to be in a different place, would you like to share one strategy you plan to start implementing this week to get back on track?
