I know that I will never make millions writing, but if I want to have the publishing world take me seriously, I have to treat writing like a full time job – which isn’t really a viable option in my house. So maybe a part time job. Its not like I don’t enjoy writing. And there is lots I can do.
There are three novels which need editing, ten short stories which need to be whipped into shape, and a novel I am currently working on to at least me finished by the end of this month. Yes, it isn’t like I don’t have enough to fill in my time with my writing.
So starting today, I am going to use the opportunity of my son returning to school, to start in my new regime. I intend to start with some idea creating writing (I have lots of prompts, so it shouldn’t be hard, and the more I practice, the more ideas will develop), do a little work on my novel (actual writing, not transcribing), edit part of a novel, a little more writing on my novel and edit some of a short story. I am hoping that this will take about 4 hours – allowing for the fact that I have had three boys in my house for nearly 10 days – the floors DESPERATELY need vacuuming! Most of the other chores, I did yesterday. So enough yabbering, and one with my day.
