Planning, Blogging and now... Writing

/

/ by
After trying out a writing exercise I feel like this past week has flown by. I've written lots but not on the novel.

Muddled Manuscript

It's been mainly blog posts and there's lots of ideas whizzing around my head for new posts. Planning sheets scatter my desk, my planner is stuffed with more and my diary is filling up. In one respect this is a good thing, I've never been this organised before. But on the other hand it means there's no time for the novel, I can't even spare half-an-hour.

Saying that though I realise I can spare it, I just don't want to. This week my priority has been the blog, I enjoy writing posts and finding new things to write about. Funnily enough today is the first day I've felt like writing the novel. So you know what, that's exactly what I'm going to do.

I'm signing off - only a short post this week. The timer will be set and writing will get done.

  2. It's always a juggling act between writing and blogging and I think you just have to follow your heart... and your typing fingers! Sounds like you had a good week and now you get the fun of writing your novel too! enjoy! xx

    1. They really do - I seem to thrive on it too. It seems strange because I used to hate not finishing a job but these days as long as I can come back to it another time I'm fine. :)

  5. I know exactly what you mean. I've got some paid writing work which is taking me away from my blogging and my fiction and I really don't like it because i enjoy them both (usually)! I love writing my own stuff-I need to make it pay better :-)

    1. That's the trouble isn't it - trying to figure a way that we can make the things we enjoy pay better. If only we could all do it all the time. :)

  6. My blog's definitely been suffering with all the work I've been putting into the novel - I'm looking forward to having more time to dedicate to it again! If only there was time to do it all... I hope you had a productive session on your novel after you signed off from this post :) xx

  7. Hope you've had time to focus on your novel a bit. All writing is writing and the more you write, the more you'll want to write. x

    1. You're right. I do want to write more and I need to carve out some time for the novel. I'll get there, eventually.
