132. Busy Mondays

Monday, August 15, 2005

Don't you hate when you know you read something somewhere, and when you go to look for it, you can't find it. I had that happen today actually, and it can be frustrating. I gave up looking after thirty minutes. One line in one article is like finding a needle in a haystack at times. Another week begins. Monday's always just feel more busy to me, even if there is nothing different than the day before. I don't have children, unless you want to count my two cats as my children. I don't have a job out of writing for various reasons I've mentioned here in my blog previously, so my time is my own. My day's usually start about one in the afternoon, and end somewhere between four and five am. I write my fiction mostly late nights, and I spend my days working on other projects, blog hopping, and reading.

One would think with the more time available to write, I'd write more. In some cases, I do. My productivity writing wise has certainly increased, especially over these summer months. I'm trying to keep up the momentum I've started and push forward with it, write more and more as time progresses. I wish I made more for my writing, but I know that will come with time. With a little persistence, it will happen. Almost seems like I'm giving myself a small pep talk, when I'm really in a positive state of mine about my writing. I know in time it will happen and more money will start coming in. It's just a matter of time and keeping at it.

Do you ever read a book and go "I can do that" or in some cases "I can do better than that." I've seen myself say that a time or two when reading a book. I know I have the skill, and I know that skill is improving with each day that passes. The more I write the more I improve it. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. However, with writing it is never perfect. You can always improve on your skill. you just need to keep at it, which I know I fully intend to do.

Small side note and question. A couple of months ago I saw a posting over on Romance Divas Forum linking to a place to get a complimentary copy of the premiere issue of Lady Jaided through Ellora's Cave. I had forgotten about it because I hadn't heard back on my request for the free issue. Well, this weekend the magazine arrived in my mail. I haven't read it from cover to the cover yet, but I've flipped through and read a few of the pages, and I'm not sure if this is what I was expecting out of the magazine so far. The advice column alone made me raise an eyebrow. I plan to look at it more tonight, but I was wondering if anyone else that had requested the complimentary issue had received theirs yet. Any thoughts?

I'm off to type in what I wrote by hand this morning before I headed off to bed. Have a great evening everyone.

I know you'll be able to reach your writing goals, Gina. And you're right the more you write, the more you improve. =D
