There are few things that make me crazier than writing. I love it, I hate it, and cannot exist without it.
The problem I have is typically discipline and focus… ooohh a piece of candy.
I know everyone who writes has a different process. Mine consists of getting a lot of ideas, usually at a moment in time I can do nothing about it, then either forgetting the idea or losing the scrap of paper it is written on. My process involves procrastination and frustration, self-doubt and what feels like almost deliberate sabotage of my own work. But the ideas keep coming. If I could syphon them off and sell the good ones I think I could be almost content.
I have almost decided to start the NaNoWrimo (National Novel Writing Month). I think it might be a good way to force myself to sit down and write. It started yesterday so I’m already a day behind. It will be a brutal challenge; 50000 words in a month. But I think I might just about, almost be ready for it….
Will keep you posted.
