Funny how I can hear my mother’s voice saying the title of this blog… ;) Well, except for the #Row80 part, anyway! But this time it’s something good.
This week, I’ve written six blog articles, edited three chapters, written about 3000 words on my my wip, and spent my hour a day 5x a week writing. Notice writing or a form of the word is in that last sentence three times. Hard to say you’re a writer if you don’t write. I’m living up to my title.
Big accomplishment – I started a blog series / commentary on Fifty Shades of Grey (50S), comparing it to my own writing. After all, I know my own characters well, and I’ve worked hard to ensure my alpha, Luc, is as alpha as I can make him and still keep him real. I’m qualified to comment.
Doing so means I’ve spent many hours writing (there’s that word again). But if I’m a writer, that’s what I do. I am also the founder / mentor / leader over on Marketing for Romance Writers. I answer posts there and discuss issues with the staff. I write sixty-seventy emails a day on various topics. Many times, I’ve started writing an answer or explained how to do something and realized that could end up being a great blog post. It’s one reason I created this blog, and also share info on another, The Author’s Secret. I love what I do, and enjoy sharing information, helping others, and encouraging them. It’s my thing, and I’m happy doing it.
Sharing with Row80 compadres is one of the best things I do all week.
