Well, I'm feeling much better and I won't have any more company coming through for a few months. Now I'm getting back to normal life and that means back to reading and writing. I never really stopped reading - I always had a book during all the travel and chaos - but once again I am having a difficult time getting back into my writing projects. This should not be so hard! After all, I want to write. So why is it that when I get busy or sick writing is the first thing that gets pushed aside? And it keeps happening - I had the same problem just a couple weeks ago. I think this is probably why only the very determined and persistent make it as writers. There has to be something that drives you to write because it's so easy to just let your projects collect dust. You have to make writing a priority. It almost requires a daily conscious re-commitment to keep myself focused and on track. This blog is a great reminder for me that I need to keep the fire burning so my writing has the chance to become something worth while.
What helps you stay focused? How do you make writing a priority?
