I need to remember this! I get myself in a flap about trying to make every bit perfect when I haven’t even finished my first draft. I probably never will if I keep trying to perfect everything so early on.
Literally me right now. Also procrastinating quite a bit- not getting any time to write at the moment either! I’m going to keep pushing on though because It has been my dream to write a book for a long time.
Absolutely love this. I have found since busying myself with work, writing, my son, my family and my real friends I am much happier. I am sure this is because I am spending my limited amount of fucks giving a fuck about the right things and not giving a fuck about the things that don’t matter (how many likes I have on Instagram, how big my house is, what kind of car I drive blah blah blah)
I work three half days a week at my fathers office but I am also writing my first novel from home. I have a seven month old son and sometimes it is impossible to get anything done. Luckily my husband or my mum can sometimes watch him for an hour or two while I get some writing done. I also find when I sit down to write at home I can’t stop noticing…
I swim to try and prevent myself from overthinking. It also helps me to think more clearly and work things out. I’ve had some of my best writing ideas while swimming- the tricky part is remembering all the good ideas long enough to get to a pen and paper or a laptop.
