I'm wondering . . .

I'm wondering who will want to read this blog. If you are a writer or person who wants to write you'll find some interesting stuff here. For example: what should I write about, where should I write, should I use a pen, pencil or my computer? How can I find time to write? What will keep me motivated? These are questions I hear over and over at writers conferences and in my own workshops. We want tips! Tell us what  makes other writers write. Here is your first challenge: make an appointment with yourself, schedule a time and keep it as though it was a meeting with a VIP.  Well if you haven't already - here is my permission to crown yourself a VIP. In the time you schedule to write, daily or weekly, nothing is more important. Put a do not disturb sign on your door. Light a candle, wrap a silk writing scarf around your neck and write.

“...make an appointment with yourself...” is a great idea! My biggest challenge is “finding” time to write. Well, I’m just not good at finding stuff so I will set aside a time of day, maybe the same time every day, to write.

Thanks for your comment CLS9 If you work at home as I do, stuff can really get in the way. For example this morning I mixed my protein drink, drank half and stuck the rest in the fridge where it promptly fell over - ran all the way down the sides dripping on every shelf . . . so I am 3 hours late for my appointment! Tomorrow I am going to the coffee shop to write. Ok if you don't have kids - mine are grown.
