Here's a question for everyone that dares to string thoughts together outside your brain and call it writing. How often do you write? Maybe that's not the best way to ask. How much time do you devote to your craft? Better.
While my children were playing in the pool today I sat there thinking about how much I don't write. I had my notebooks with me. Yes, I'm one of those that likes to write on paper still.... ancient way of creating I know, but it's freeing to me. I have an idea notebook crammed full of book ideas and stories with beginnings and very little else. So, I decided to count all the works in progress... or works that have been set aside so long that I can't really remember everything in them. Well, 47 is the magic number of unfinished or forgotten work.
Now that inventory has been taken, I feel challenged to complete some of these before the end of the year. It's going to be exciting visiting with the old friends of my imagination and embarking on journey after journey to the far off places in my mind.
My only problem... when in the world do I find the time? I'd love to hear from any of you about your writing schedules.
