This is not Procrastination
WriterReadersPost is not an exercise in procrastination, or so I must tell myself. Hopefully it will contain useful information: on writing habits, software, outlining, plot development, proper lighting and suitable refreshments.
I won’t dwell, too much, on things like writers block because, although I often suffer from this writer’s malady. I actually rather call it by its other more appropriate name: Those moments when there really is something else I’d rather do. They happen and I’m not worried. I’m not hard core. I don’t believe that if I’m not writing my joy meter immediately drops to zero, maybe later when I realize that time has passed and I haven’t written, but not immediately.
At the moment I’m struggling through a growing spurt. I’m re-working a decent short story into what I hope will be an even better novel. I’m moving along, some days discouraged, some days with new found enthusiasm. (I also happen to believe that just being a writer does not require a constant depressive state, although the ability to empathize is probably essential.)
