That was not my intent with the top 10. I put my butt in the chair every day. I work at it. It’s difficult and some days I don’t end up with any word count (cutting and editing take away chunks) at all. THOSE DAYS STILL COUNT.
If writing were easy, everyone would do it. I know that. I don’t get a regular paycheck to show everyone that yes, I worked hard today. But that’s not why I write. I don’t need a cookie everytime I finish a paragraph. I’m not sitting in a chair at the keys waiting for someone to notice me. I do go to coffee shops and libraries to write, but for the change of scenery that shakes up the writing. I feel guilty taking up a booth for three hours but I don’t sit there and preen. I WRITE, damn it.
I need the words everyday. I need self-discipline to practice my skills everyday. I have that. And I do it ON TOP OF my day job.
I’m not a special snowflake that deserves extra attention. I was poking fun at myself. My last post was purely meant as fun. Smile people, it burns more calories.
