A lot has changed since I last saw you, dear blog, however unfortunately what hasn’t changed is my writing habit.
Obviously, my subconscious is stronger than my conscious mind…else why would I still be going around the same merry-go-round going on God knows how many years…I’ve lost count!
Or, maybe it’s just one of those things that every writer has to work through in a manner that suits both their personality and their particular situation.
Either way, it stinks.
I figure if people who have a full-time job away from home can keep a writing routing, what in the heck am I still doing mucking about?
Ah, the red squirrels…red herrings…shiny baubles and/or trinkets…I’m bad as a Magpie, I tell you!
Focus and Refocus
First, the focus part.
My focus has been everywhere lately, and for good reason…there’s been a lot going on in my personal life, plus my client workload has increased too, but there’s no excuse. As I said earlier, people hold down full-time jobs, away from the house, and they find the time to write.
NO MORE EXCUSES!
Next, the “refocus” part. Although I probably could have come up with a better heading, I think it suits what I’m trying to say.
And that is, that my habit of editing while I write has to stop.
I suppose it serves me in some capacity for my content creation and copywriting, however truth be told it probably slows me down there too.
Am I writing on a typewriter?
Is it super, duper easy to go back here and there and change a line?
Yes, very easy.
So why do I self correct? Aghh!
Habit. Habit. Habit.
Time for a new, improved habit, eh?
Wish me luck…
