It’s June – JuNoWriMo once again.
Last June I wrote the draft of my first organized crime novel – Lotierie: Legend.
This June – I could write a sequel. I could write the second novel in the Nelson and Cora trilogy. I could write Ethan’s story from Josephine.
So, if you want to know how to avoid writing, here are some things that I have learned that ARE NOT writing:
– reading blogs
– looking at Pinterest
– thinking about writing
– reading books
– watching movies
– listening to music
All great writing-related tasks (at least possibly) but NOT WRITING.
Here’s to putting rears in seats and fingers to keyboard or pen to paper and writing. Here’s to kicking fear of failure, fear of the junk that rises to the surface during the first, second, fiftieth drafts and getting it out. Here’s to doing the work. Here’s to writing.
