A Writing Journey

I’ve always said, summer is my time to write. In the past 2.5 days, I have revised over half of my novel. Admittedly, it’s mostly reading through, tweaking, adding some additional scenes, and correcting typos. But it’s still a long process.

Authors always seem to say that one must write every day, or accomplish nothing. While I agree that one must be involved in their story every day, that doesn’t have to mean writing. On days when I’m not writing, even the deep dark months of winter, I am thinking about my novel, how to make it better, how to go about getting it published. And if not this novel, my other ideas that litter the surfaces of my desk, the pockets of my purse, the floor under my bed.

So here is my advice: think about writing every day. Think about your plot, about your characters, your maps and mysteries. And when the writing bug strikes, write. Write as if you have days left to live. Write as though there is nothing else you have to do. If writing is what your life is about, make everything in your life be about writing.

When is the best time for you to write?

  1. Honestly, summer is probably best for me too. There’s a lot less going on at that time.
