The more I write, the faster I write, the better I write.
If I write daily, even a little – like say 500 words – it flows better each time I sit down. Even though there has been a span of time in between writing sessions doing the things of life (You don’t want my list: cooking, dishes, laundry, walking the dog! It looks just like yours!), as I begin writing, the words pour out, leading me on.
Not only do I stay in the story better, I stay in the flow of my writing style. It comes easier. It takes me on the ride. The characters lead me where they want to go. The story develops faster.
It’s more fun!
The flip side is when I don’t write often, the story lags and stumbles. I struggle to get into the character point of view. Plus, if I haven’t written in even a few days, I don’t feel complete or satisfied. I lost part of myself. Part of me didn’t live that day. This sounds crazy, but I didn’t sing in my spirit that day. I didn’t soar …
