10 Minutes a Day #amwriting #mondayblogs

You can write a book in only ten minutes a day. IF you write every single day. The way it works is if you engage with the story every single day, the story will evolve. You’ll probably end up spending a bit more time writing on days when you can find more time.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

p.s. I have an essay out today in Sweatpants & Coffee. It’s called Hungering. Here’s the link.

Here is your photo prompt of the week. Write something if you’re so moved.

  1. Like the Ferris Wheel provides enjoyment, personal consistency can too. With a husband and four young children, I didn’t have time to write the book that wanted to be written. Finally, I began working on it from 5:30 to 7:30 every summer morning, six days a week, from June 8 until school started in August in 1982. I made myself stop at 7:30 each day, yet was able to produce 378 pages of brilliant prose. That book never sold. I wrote a second book the next summer. Neither did that book sell. I kept writing early mornings. I was working on Manuscript No 12 when No. 8 sold. I now have 13 published books from six print/royalty companies, and two more under contract. I am happily toiling away on No. 24. With an empty nest, I have more time now, but lack the consistency I had when time was dearer.
