You wanna be starting something...

It's Wishcasting Wednesday and today Jamie asks:

"The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started." - Dawson Trotman

I wish to start writing every day.  I've re-begun my morning pages so I am doing the three handwritten pages a day, but despite signing up for Row80, I haven't been doing any writing beyond that except for the first few days.  Part of it is that work has been busy and I suddenly have a social life of sorts that requires me to stop being a hermit on my time off from writing keeps taking a back seat.  Even when I do have time, I keep choosing to do other things - I need to catch up on my coupons, let me organize my closet, etc.  

I need to create a small niche of time that is just my own for writing.  Even if I end up writing pure drivel that should never cross another person's line of vision.  If I want to be a published author, I can't just wish it into fruition, I have to put in the effort.

You've reminded me that I've been thinking about getting back to my morning pages practice as well, Mare - thank you for that!

I don't know if you'd be interested, but I've just released a free 8-lesson e-course on how to create your own unique writing ritual to get you into a writing mindstate and *feel* more like writing. Just let me know if that sounds useful!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you.

Oh, yes! Word after word after word.
Good to know you are dedicating time to your social life too. It´s going to serve both as a well replenisher and real life inspiration for your writing. :)
