Here we go!!
I’ve been writing with the intent to create a novel (or many) for 10+ years. However, I’ve also been a working-man in the world of technology for longer than that span. So, in case you aren’t keeping score: I have held down a day job for my entire writing ‘career.’ And while nothing has changed on that front, I am trying something new this week: I’m making writing my full-time job for 4 days.
Yeah, last year I tried something similar as I took a vacation to North Carolina to write/relax… I did get some writing done, but I also played games and lounged at the beach. This time, it’s 4 days of writing and we’ll see what we see at the end of it all.
I’ve heard some other writers (the ones who can afford to make writing their career) talk about how they only write for a few hours a day. Supposedly, the creative mind can only be tapped “lightly” each day (for most). I’ll test my reservoir of raw creation and let y’all know if I become worn down, can’t write or wander into the land of games (must resist). The goal is to treat this experiment like a professional and finish the first draft of Babylon.
We shall see.
