Sometimes Writing Makes Me Feel Childish…

Posted Jun 6 2010, 11:34 pm in ,

I am in deep drafting mode–this is what happens after I get over the halfway point in a book. It’s not that I write faster. I don’t. I just write more. Or at least I want to. These are the days that I drool over the idea of a solid day alone with my computer.

Go ahead, laugh. I do.

I don’t get days alone with my computer. I love the idea (in theory), but I have a day job, a toddler, a house, a husband, friends, a couple neurotic dogs, etc. etc. You probably have all (or most) of these too, and if you do you know how hard it is to find a couple hours–let alone a whole day–for anything else. I’m not complaining. I have a freaking fabulous life.

Instead, I have to be willing to squeak out words whenever I get the chance. I try to carry around my AlphaSmart, but I can’t always plan for these surprise moments of writing opportunity. For those moments, I keep a notebook in my purse.

Quite the boyscout, huh? Always prepared? Not so much when your only pen is dry and you have to resort to writing with your son’s crayon.

    It might not be pretty, but it gets the job done! I’m all for anything that moves us forward and keeps us productive.
