It’s been just about a month since my last blog entry. I’ve been busier the past month than I have the previous two. March found me knee-depth in tax paperwork, daycare trainings, contest coordination, a scrapbook retreat, and birthday celebrations. With those things behind me, I can focus on other matters, namely my writing.
One aspect of my writing is blogging. I love having space on the ‘net where I can muse about whatever pops into my head. Recently I considered changing my blog title. Although I have the musings part down, I’m floundering in the reviews department. The title I considered used write as a pun, but a wonderful online friend suggested that has been overdone in the world o’blogging. While chatting with her yesterday, I decided to review other things besides books. I could review TV shows, blogs, movies, or anything else that catches my attention.
Another area that needs my attention is my novel. I put it on the back burner to simmer while I tended to the pots that threatened to bubble over. My poor characters have been tossed aside while I crunched numbers, learned more about the children in my care, shuffled contest entries, created a memory album, and aged another year. All of these things were very important for the different hats I wear, but my characters are just as important.
Even though I’m not a published writer yet, I need to become more focused, more disciplined with my writing time. Especially since there is a limited amount of time I have each day to write. I can’t be a wannabe writer–one who talks about writing, but doesn’t follow through. I have a completed novel in dire need of editing, the next two books in the same series already started, and a new novel in a different genre started. Now it’s time to bribe my muse out of hiding and see what I can throw at my characters.
Watch for a new review soon!
