All of my kids are in school this year so I have more time to write. Woot! Now I can get ‘serious’ about my writing. Serious for me means writing for a dedicated amount of time or writing a set amount of pages a day. It also means taking responsibility for my writing. I can’t push the blame to the stalkers when I miss or misuse my writing time during the day. They didn’t make me spend thirty minutes reading comments to a news story.
Getting ‘serious’ also means to me pursuing publication, but before I can do that I need to stay focused on a wip long enough to finish it. And that I need to stop dreaming and do. Dreams can’t come true if they stay in her head. They need more space to grow and take form.
When did you get ‘serious’ about your writing? How do you define ‘serious’? What did you do to show you were serious?
