Over the past month I have been spending time blogging.
Not tweeting…and especially not working on my original writing projects.
It’s a tough balancing act, learning to accommodate all three.
When I found time to write, that was great.
Then I started the tweeting thing, and that worked okay.
So long as I was writing often enough, it reminded me to tweet.
But when I added blogging to the equation…my whole plan dissolved.
I’m hoping to find a balance with the three, as I do understand the importance of building the platform and providing multiple forms of writing for the world at large.
Time will tell.
Meanwhile, I finally found a niche of time to actually get some writing in last night.
I decided to get back to Project #1, and get another chapter knocked out.
However, as sometimes happens…creativity did a 180.
I ended up working a completely different project I meant to start eventually.
But it insisted on beginning immediately.
Rather than interrupt that creative process, I rolled with it, and came up with a good, reasonable draft of an outline, a solid first chapter, and a wimpy second chapter.
All in all, I was very pleased with the progress, even though it wasn’t at all what I expected.
Life is like that. Thank goodness.
