I’m back to posting about my insecurities. Not like my insecurities went away, but I was too busy to write about them last month.
First, big thank you to our awesome co-hosts today, Eva Solar, Melanie Schulz, Lisa-Buie Collard, and Stephen Tremp! And, as always, huge thanks to Alex. J. Cavanaugh for his leadership.
As I writer, when I am working on a first draft of a WIP, I tend to not like to do anything else. It is my favorite part about this writing job and I allow my brain to be consumed by it, enjoy it, mentally live it until I get the words on the page.
But, as a writer, I don’t get to write as much as I would like to. That is so disappointing and counterproductive. I know …if you want to get better, get recognized, get a royalty check that allows you to do this full time, you have to find time to write.
I am trying. As soon as I finish, plotting, editing, marketing, Facebooking, Tweeting, book related socializing, networking, signing, mailing, filing, editing, editing, editing. Oh, I said that already.
As a writer, how much writing do you get to do?
