Just Keep Writing

Back to the 30-day blogging challenge that I'm doing in 30 weeks (approximately).

The next challenge is "Bullet your whole day." Well, that's too easy:

  • Get up
  • Go to Starbucks
  • Write (maybe, see below)
  • Nap
  • Call my mother
  • Watch Jeopardy
  • Go to bed.
So I'll do the next one: A quote I try to live by.  I'm going to cheat a little. The quote I try to live by is
one I made up. It's "Just keep writing." No matter what, if you're a writer, you need to just keep writing. I haven't been living up to that quote very well lately. I don't have writer's block, I just have not been in an emotional place where I want to write. I am stuck in the middle of a novel with no place to go.

But I always tell writers (hypocritically lately) that if they want to write they need to "just keep writing." You might write crap, but a crap first draft beats no first draft every time.

So just keep writing. Or, do as I say, not as I do.
