Write When You Can

No, this isn't another Pitfall post.  Just an observation.  With all the crud that's been going on, I've really had the point knocked home: Take the time to write whenever you can.

My hip is still farged up, and I can only sit for about 30 minutes max at a time.  (Well, if I want to be able to get up afterwards and walk more than a step or two.)  Also, it seems to be better in the morning than later in the day.  Sooo...

I read my blogs and comment where I can first thing in the morning, then I get right on the book.  (Sorry to everyone who hasn't been getting comments lately.)  I type for as long as I can then I hit the couch.  After giving the old hip a break, I try to write again in the afternoon.  Finally, if I'm feeling okay, I sit here again.  If I keep to a schedule like that, I just might make it.  It's what I did on Sunday and again Tuesday.  (Monday was errand day, so I was toast before I even got a chance to write.)

Add in the other things that take me away from the keyboard, and I really do have to make the most of whatever time I have.  If that means ten minutes, I write for ten minutes.  If it's longer, I write as much as I can in for as long as I can. 

Okay, since I'm still a fully functioning body-system, I'm off to write a bit.  I hope you have a great day.  Wish me luck.  ;o)

  1. I agree, write whenever you can! A year ago I was one of those "I need to be in the mood, and I need to have 5 hours free before I can write" types. Over the summer, however, I learned that I need to write whenever. This really hit home when school started. Sadly, my brain generally restricts me to weekend writing.

    Good luck writing! I hope the hip cooperates and gets better soon! -hugs-
