What do you do instead of writing? You probably have a long list of things that you do. Two of my favorite low-key activities are watching Netflix and reading. These are not inherently bad activities; however, they do take time away from writing. Yes, you can learn a lot about narrative from watching a series or a movie or reading a novel or collection of essays. And that is what I tell myself: it’s research. Sometimes, it’s research; sometimes, it’s procrastination.
Let’s face it, you can’t write all the time. You have to experience life, relax, have fun, see people, take care of domestic chores, and – if your writing doesn’t support you – spend time at your place of employment.
I have a busy life and I make time for my Writer Self. I hope you do, too.
Join me for my mini-seminar. See information below.
It’s teatime. Let’s write!
