For a long time, I’ve been keeping a morning journal. Originally, I did it as a necessity and it’s been my constant, true friend. Perhaps it’s self-indulging, as some might say, but as far as I can tell, it has helped me throughout my days and provided an anchor when I felt astray. I’ve been keeping a journal for many years – let’s just say for as long as some of you readers have been alive…egats.
I tried speed reading, but I don’t think it really fits my personality. Plus, I like listening. It’s nice to give your eyes a break. I feel like we use our eyeballs a lot and I fear my vision is going through another one of its annoying changes. Regardless though, there is something really lovely about being told a story.
There are writers who write within a genre and those who write outside of them, too. But what about the readers? How do you read? What do you read? Why do you read?
I don’t know why I don’t do these posts more often. I need to do these types of posts more often. I’m going to do these posts more often.
It seems like everyone wants to be a writer these days, but that isn’t going to stop me from writing. When I started to pitch my first book to agents, let me tell you I got mightily discouraged from the lack of interest. I went through phases of wondering if I should even bother – to trying harder to figure out what I needed to do.
