Friday I set a goal to write on my sequel each day during the weekend. That was an ambitious goal since I have done very little writing the last few months.
The business end of publishing a book turned out to be far more of an all-consuming project than I ever imagined it would be. I never thought about how launching a book in four different formats would require so much coordination and promotion from me!
Working that side of authorship has been fun, but writing is where the true joy is. It's hard to put into words just how engrossing it can be to enter your own imagination, peek into a world you created, and then set down on a computer or notepad what you see. There is no other entertainment quite like it.
Needless to say, I've been missing that in my life. I'm happy to report, that I accomplished my goal and wrote each and every day this past weekend! I finished two chapters, which is around 5,000 words or so.
My hope is that I can continue this momentum the rest of the week. If you want a secret to being a writer, here's one: make writing a consistent habit that you do at the same time and in the same place each day. If you can manage that, you'll have a greater chance at success.
So here's to good habits!
