Life of a writer.

I don’t know what I’d do without the encouragement from those close to me. A few simple words can really get the day rolling.

Unfortunately, I started my day at 3:00 p.m., fortunately it started.

I realize that I have to have a specific routine that gets me going on this book:

  1. Work out
  2. Meditate
  3. Write

I’m hand writing this book – it feels more genuine that way, even though my hand writing has lost it’s flare of perfection, due to years of depending on keyboards.

It also makes it harder to reach my 10 pages a day goal. So, I’m hoping, that I can rely on a schedule like this:

  1. Wake up
  2. Meditate
  3. Write
  4. Work out
  5. Meditate
  6. Write

The issue is, with MK, there is no room to mediate or write as soon as I wake up. So, I’ll have to figure that part out — or this book is going to take longer to write. (Which, I’m okay with). I also enjoy having MK to blame, it gives me a reason to enjoy life.

Anyways, back to the routine. I’ve realized it’s essential to keep my mind and heart as light as possible — during this process, hence why I’ve initiated the importance of physical and mental exercise. On top of that routine, I have to squeeze in reading.

It’s a similar process to working out. You don’t want to do it — at first. And then when you successfully jot down a couple of pages of artistic expression, you feel revealed and proud.

I do — however, need to expand my writer’s community.

    Hello, I am an English-Writing major in college at the moment. I have taken many writing classes, as a writer myself, I agree with what you pictured text you posted. Writing is hard, it’s an easy thing to do, I should think about making a schedule and focus on one story/book at a time. Right now, I have multiple stories that I want to turn into books, but I have too many at once.

      Hi Brittany! What I’ve found with picking one’s story — it’s to simply begin writing about the one that comes to mind – and much like a quilt — if you can intertwine the other stories — it becomes easier to navigate which one you will ultimately write first. That’s how I’m starting out. Hope this helps
