I can’t figure out for the life of me whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing that I can be inspired to write a few thousand words in one go and then struggle to write anything at all for days. My word-counting spreadsheet shows ridiculous gaps (like, a week) between days where I do any writing at all, and those have distinct humps (not that I represent it graphically) of 5k+ days roughly every 6 weeks. Surely that can’t be a good sign, yet I feel a sense of accomplishment every time I get anything down on the page.
I’m aware it lacks discipline, and I long to be in the habit of writing at least the same amount each day, but I’m struggling with a few other things at the moment which simply must take precedence; namely, losing weight and getting exercise and adulting (not naughty things; doing laundry, washing up and cooking – you know, things adults do). After all that, all I want to do of an evening is relax with a glass/bottle/cup of something and re-read a book on my e-reader.
reads this has any suggestions on ways to build writing into my day, I’m listening. For now, I will content myself with the occasional flash of creativity and write what I can.
