It's been awhile, hasn't it?
But I had to break away. It was a need to define my writing processes, and put to use what I discovered.
I learned some pretty pertinent stuff, like that I write better when I edit as I go - that is, take time to really make sure I'm saying what the story begs of me any given moment, instead of rushing through, just for the sake of getting it out no matter its quality. That works for some; I understand now, not me.
I realized it's best to keep my projects quiet. My momentum is steadier, and I hold up better to my own expectations and accountabilities than I do to those of others. That said, I've omitted the word count statuses in the sidebar, and plan to post only generically about my WIPs - at least during the creating and writing stages.
My output spikes when I write during morning hours, and if I change up my location every few weeks.
What I've always known is, my dependence on your support and encouragement is high. I couldn't write and dream if I didn't have all of you lifting me up and helping me along. And that won't change.
Have you ever taken the time to really discover who you are with your writing? What methods do you identify with?
