I've been reading a lot of books about writing lately. I snag them from Amazon when they're free and read them on my Kindle. I also subscribe to tips from various writers, bloggers, publishers, etc. on Twitter. Each one offers a different perspective, but one thing is common across the board.
Every day. Write something.
That is one reason I started this blogging experiment--to force myself to write something each day.
The trouble is, I can't always think of the "something" to write.
One of the writers I read said "writer's block" was nonexistent and was merely making excuses. He said if you made yourself sit down and just start writing, something would eventually come--no block. It's all in your head.
So I guess this little bit of rambling I'm doing here still counts as writing something today, right?
Anyway, here's my day today: laundry, dishes, pumpkin waffles, bill-paying and checkbook reconciling, and writing my first story for this site I got an invite to.
Oh, hey, there's something to write about! I got an invitation to a writers' site! It pays exactly jack and squat, but it still feels good to get noticed and invited to be part of something.
Of course, I have four blogs I don't use much--maybe I don't need another site to write for right now.
Oh, well. At least I'm writing something.
