Tip of the day: Have a safe and happy fourth of July!
I’m guessing most people are off making potato salad or cupcakes or something else equally delicious, preparing for the big day tomorrow, so I’m going to make today’s post short.
I still haven’t written anything new in quite a long time. Honestly, writing in the summer is hard for me. I love summer. Summer time in Oregon is beautiful, and the sun and warmth pull me outside, even if it’s simply to sit on my patio reading a book.
There was a time when I would beat myself up if I didn’t write every day, no matter what. Well, not anymore. As I get older, I realize, life is short. I do love writing, but I also love a lot of other things too. Some day, a few months from now, the rain will return and I know it will be much easier to go to the computer, open the document, and dive in.
I’ve learned over the years that I write in spurts. I’ll have a couple of months where I go full-speed on a manuscript, writing every spare second I have. Then, I’ll have a few months where I don’t write anything.
This works for me. And that’s the important thing. I truly believe we each need to find what works well for us and not worry about what others are doing.
So for now, I’m not writing. And I've realized I’m perfectly okay with that.
What about you? Do you write every day no matter what, or does your writing go in waves, like mine?
