Being fairly new to writing and definitely new to blogging, I am amazed by all of the other writers that are out there. I can’t help but wonder how they got started writing, what continues to motivate them and how they manage their writing journeys.
I can’t say that anything in particular kick-started me to write. It’s more like I caught a writing bug — it came out of nowhere and I can’t get rid of it. I have a fairly demanding job that doesn’t allow for much distraction, but when I am not working, writing is on my mind. When I take my evening shower, I am writing a book or a poem in my head, totally oblivious to whether I had just shampooed my hair. While I sit next to my husband watching television, I am drawing illustrations for a book. Late in the evening, I lay in bed outlining my ideas, writing and editing.
What got you started writing and how do you incorporate writing into your daily life?
One thought on “What do other writers do?”
I am a write a little every day kind of person, though I do often write more than I intend to once I begin! What has kept me going is the desire to share writing online twice a week, so that gives me two things to work on over seven days. Having a goal, therefor, is essential!
May the words flow. ❤
