Writing Begins with Forgiveness
This links to an article about how writing begins with forgiving yourself for how long it’s been since you wrote last. It’s about how a writer is a writer because they write and not because they write every day.
I really enjoy this because I’m really good at not writing for long stretches of time.
So if you feel like it’s been too long since you wrote last and you can’t get back to your writing, then start by ignoring that and just write instead.
This blog is all Heather’s fault.
Let me explain.
We were at writing group and she mentioned everyone having a blog.
- I never set up a blog for writing group. Does that mean I can’t be part of the fun?
- I love making blogs.
- That sounds like not writing — excellent.
So get this, I made another blog. And I’m great at making blogs. Starting blogs is so easy nowadays (*crotchety old man voice* back in my day we had to download WordPress, and then upload it using an FTP, and create all the databases ourselves). All I had to do was make a sub-domain and use the one click installation from my web hosting company.
Heather even thought up the name for me. I lie sometimes. Cindy thought up the name for me.
So that’s how this is all Heather’s fault, even though Cindy gave me the name.
Maybe I’ll even do some fiction writing stuff on here.
