Typical day in my writing life:
- Wake up, drink coffee
- Write some crap
- Go to my day job
- Hurry home and write more crap
- Sleep and dream of writing crap
I wish life were different and I could stay home and write all day. I’m working on getting there. A little work each day, puts me in the right direction. It’s often frustrating to see others succeed when we wish for an ounce of success. Nothing is absolute being a writer, I think one has to enjoy the lifestyle. It can be independent and lonely at times, guess it’s a good thing I’m an introvert.
As a writer, most work is done alone with your butt in a chair, plugging away on the keyboard. It can be vexing working on a story with ideas going, then the next having no idea what to write. This happens all too often.
Just because you haven’t made a dime doesn’t mean you’re not a writer. I keep telling myself this when I get overwhelmed and get rejection letters. It happens, deal with it and write on.
