While teaching workshops, I asked the question, "How many of you write every day without fail?" Only one person raised there hand. it was Tom Grundner, dec. founder of Fireship Press in Tucson.
When I was back in Colorado, I lived in the Front Range (Longmont) and I drove to Estes Park five days a week to work. This was an hour drive on a winding road, climbing 3,500 feet in elevation. I began using a recorder. It was a little awkward at first, but soon I discovered that I'd leave my house, start dictating fiction, and arrive at my job not remembering most of the ride! It was euphoric!
Did you know that most Smart Phones can download a recorder App? No worries, you can write any time, on the way to the doctor, shopping, work... So what if you need to type your audio writing into your computer, because, guess what... It becomes your first edit.
I like Stephen King's idea...He lets his family know that whenever his office door is closed, it's a message to 'Do Not Disturb'. In addition, this closed door reminds him he must be writing!
Another plus for writing every day...it is easier to maintain the thread of your story fresh in your mind. Otherwise, if days have gone by, you've left your characters frozen in place in the scene, and it steals your writing time to have to retrace your plot. Can't you just see your muse shaking his/her head in disgust when this happens?
Write on...you awesome authors, and make time count for every word...
