That is the question.
I’ve posted several times in as many days and I thank you all for reading! A story is evolving and I’m trying to keep up.
I tend to post as inspiration hits and time allows. Those two variables don’t always line up to create an even, predictable graph.
So, I’m experimenting with structure. I’m going to post twice a week and see how that goes. So far, it’s meant restraint! I know, I was surprised too… I guess this is what happens when people make writing a priority?
I’ve already held off on posting! I’m used to hitting the “publish” button as soon as I have something readable. That’s meant a few minutes to a few hours between my idea and the resulting post. Now, I have a draft that I’ve worked on for more than a day.
I’ve already seen a difference. I woke up this morning and my first cohesive thought– after the ghostly shadows dancing across the window– was a word I wanted to change in my draft post. That’s right, one word.
I lay there smiling, thinking, is this what happens to… writers? (Can I even use that word?)
Hopefully, it will mean better things for you to read. Then again, if life takes over too much of my writing time I may end up blasting through the idea-to-post arc to adhere to the two-posts-per-week schedule and we’ll be back to pantsing it.
Thanks again for reading. I appreciate it so very much. 🙂
