Egad! Thirty drafts in my folder. I haven’t posted here in nearly two weeks but I have so many uncompleted thoughts in my drafts. I don’t know what the issue is but I’m profusely embarrassed or at least somewhat disheartened that I’ve put writing on the back burner again.
In early January, I spent about 20 minutes on my resolutions. I wrote them in a brand new fancy notebook with a brand new fancy pen and then haven’t looked at them again. I know somewhere in there is a promise to write more. Especially on Fridays when I’m off from work. I did manage to do this two weeks ago and got started on a new novel that came rushing out of me faster than I could type it. I spent a couple of hours just hammering out the words. I reread them and thought this could really go somewhere and then the next day I thought it was complete shite! That was also the day I locked myself out of the house.
The main issue is that I am desperately in need of a routine. I love routine but I just cannot get it together and I have to wonder why. Why can’t I say I’m going to do this and then just do it? It’s like I am totally inept at writing resolutions. I am getting somewhere with my resolution to run, and I’m much better with meal planning and I’m even managing to remember to bring my lunch to work so I can eat healthier.
Tomorrow is a brand new Friday. I resolve to get my cleaning and errands done today so I can get back to writing again. Even if it is shite.
Please give me some inspiration. What is your writing routine?
