Writing More: One of My Other New Year's Resolutions
February 03, 2018 • Leave a Comment
I haven't worked on my writing projects in a long time. Going back to working outside the home 40 hours a week has sapped me of most of my energy. I wish I could quit my job, but I can't. Bills keep coming, food keeps running out. So that's why I added writing to my list of 2018 resolutions.
I have a complete novel written and it is sitting on my hard drive waiting to be edited. I have two short stories waiting to be finished, and a never ending supply of story and novel ideas. I just can't make myself sit in front of the computer and write.
So for 2018 I have committed to writing once a week, not including blog posts, even if it is for only 5 minutes. Something is better than nothing. I'm hoping it will help light my spark, wake up my muse, get me interested again. Not that I'm not interested. I think about writing all the time and come up with new ideas constantly. I just don't want to sit in that computer room for some reason.
My guess, it is because I spent 20 years working in there while I was a wedding photographer. I know, an easy solution, move my computer or get a small one I can move around. I've tried that and it sort of worked. My device is too old now. I need to update but I don't have the money for it. My job pays very little. I would say they are ripping me off, which is why getting a new job is number 1 on the resolution list.
I plan to update everyone on my progress here or on Facebook, most likely here. I may post one of the short stories when it is finished. If you have any ideas on staying motivated please post them. Maybe they will help me and other writers. Here are some stories I did finish that you can check out if you are interested.
