Holy, it's been 17 days since my last blog entry. The holidays are killing me. Between visiting relatives, gift shopping, and the endless holiday parties, I'm all out of sorts. Despite all of this, I continue to "write" just about every day. I might research topics, people, or settings but it's all related to writing. I try to get something down on my StoryMill software everyday. A steady routine is the best thing you can do for yourself as a writer. Books do not write themselves and what takes 10 minutes to read, might take all day to write. So you just plug away everyday. I'll have to try harder on my blog though. 5 days until Christmas. Why aren't you writing?
