I have read that many authors write everyday, Sunday through Saturday, Christmas and New Years Eve. I can’t seem to do that.
On Mondays, I write out my weekly to do lists. I schedule myself to write Sunday through Saturday. I never actually write on Saturday or Sunday. I always have the intention to write but can never seem to get to it.
Life happens. My daughter wants to go for a walk, my husband wants to go to the beach, we have Girl Scouts, or one hundred other things pop up and I don’t want to be tied to my laptop writing. No, I want to be out, living.
And yet, I read things from Nicholas Sparks, things like, he writes everyday and reads over “100 books a year” and I feel inadequate.
Thanks a lot Nicholas Sparks. Am I really angry with Nicholas Sparks for being so motivated? Of course not. In fact, I will use this to motivate me, to push me to use my time more wisely.
Does someone make you feel inadequate? How can you use that to make yourself better?
