I'm Finally Doing Something!!!

I would always tell myself, "I'll start writing everyday!" then I won't do it. NOW I do! I didn't want to post a blog entry of my recent plans to write everyday because I always do something like that but NOT do it! I decided to wait until I actually did it and low and behold, here. I. Am.

For a whole week, I've been getting up at 5:30 (sometimes around 6 because I might have had trouble sleeping, a coffee shop that I liked wasn't open etc.), and drive to a coffee shop or something of the sort and do everything to do with writing. I've been doing writing sprints AND writing my novel. I would open my document for my novel and (would) do 5 min sprints to start of so, not only am I writing everyday, but I'm ALSO writing my novel.

I read my writing book today because I felt like doing a whole week of writing, I could give myself a little break and relax. I still am going to do it, but I'm not going to right when I open my laptop and write. I don't want to risk burning myself out, but I also don't want to stop in risk of slacking off. Cross your fingers for me guys!

I also have been writing my blog which I haven't been updating since two days ago, but I will. I have been writing a WHOLE lot lately, so I'm not too hard on myself about it. I'm fixing to update it soon though since I finished a whole week of writing everyday.

I saw a post about someone saying authors don't really "write everyday" because of burn outs or what have you, but I feel like I need to since I haven't written at all. When I get to the point where I have written for three weeks I'll have a free day-maybe.

I'm trying networking too! I joined linkedIn and tried reaching out to people (two people if we're being technical) and so far I have one connection. It's because I read a book and the author said to feel free and connect with him. I recently asked him for some book recommendations which is pretty neat (I feel like a silly person since I'm terrible with networking right now, but I shall progress!!!).

Now, all I have to do is try critiquing on this website and be a part of the community more, but with all the writing I have been doing I haven't really been doing that.

I'm also a Beta reader, so I have less time to spend on writing forums. I hope by doing this though, that I will help more Authors in this community.

So, yeah. I'm finally doing something with my passion for writing. Look for my name on a novel in a few years! (My name's Jessica Lowery btw lol)

If anyone is reading this by any chance, have a spendid day, and happy holidays!!! :D :D :D :D
