There Really Is Something to Writing Practice

I thought I didn’t have time for it, but engaging in it for a mere 10 minutes actually allowed me to make more use of every hour.

I honestly never feel like there are enough hours in the day right now to get to a place where I can truly sustain myself financially and have a bit left over at the end of the month, let alone begin building my emergency fund.

This is a difficult career path, to say the least, but I am hanging onto hope that the rewards awaiting me will be well worth the intensity I am enduring at the moment.

Right now, I am actually writing over 20,000 words in two days, which is no small feat, let me tell you. I sometimes have to stay up quite late to meet these goals, but it is arguably worth it (hopefully) in the long run.

I did not think I could do it, but I tried typing gobble-dee-gook onto a word document the other day for about ten minutes.

I only reached about 5,000 “words” but it actually helped me type faster so, if you are struggling to write fast — or write enough — you might want to give this a shot.

Natalie Golberg has penned a book that is much more eloquently worded pertaining to this process, so you might want to give that a read as well.



I will be sharing all of the ups, downs, and in-betweens of the writing life, along with a few tips about honing this wonderful craft.
