I’m in the final week of accelerated summer school courses and realized I haven’t posted in nearly four (4) full weeks. Decided to come take a look at the blog site and re-read the title and sub-header:
This is the goal I set out for this blog: To encourage other writers that they can get their writing done while dealing with the rest of life. Yet, I’ve obviously not been blogging regularly, nor have I been writing privately.
I’m going to pause here for a second, head off-stage and have a short beat myself up session. . .
Okay I’m back.
For me, I know I need more than just drawing a line in the sand. I need to surround myself with the tools that motivate me:
- Writing music
- Reading good books
- Attending local writer’s group
- Actually putting new words to paper
- Re-reading old ideas and seeing what new ideas spark
- As I perform other activities, (watching TV, reading, standing in line at the Walmart return counter) I should be generating new ideas and writing them down on a notepad or something
For others it may be as simple as drawing a line in the sand.
Draw your line and keep on writing!
