This isn't a post dogging blogging.
Hey, that rhymed!
Blogging has been a big help to me. I've found to great contacts who have helped me learn about the craft and given me a sense of community.
This is a post about time and prioritization.
As a writer, time is the most difficult thing to come by. I know I'm not the only one with this issue. There are countless posts out there about finding the time to write.
Write while you're on the toilet. Never watch TV. Sleep when you're dead. Etc...
Not gonna happen.
Creativity I have (I think). Technique I can hone. Style I can improve. But time is a finite resource; there's only so much to go around. And blogging takes time.
AND the thing about blogging is that it isn't really writing. Not creative, fictiony, character-driven, crawling with dwarfs and robots writing-that-I-love type writing anyway.
So, I'm going to try to cut back the blogging to one QUALITY post per week.
Please tune in next week for my thoughts on the difference between creative and technical writing and how they can influence one another.
Have a great weekend!
