I admire those people who can keep a blog going and write a novel at the same time. I’ve realised I can’t do it. It’s got to be one or the other. I’m still getting the ducks in a row but there’s always one that refuses to come down when called.
Steven King advises:
Write with the door closed. Rewrite with the door open.
Sound advice and I pass it on for your use if needed.
He also said: don’t seek praise from groups. It only feeds your ego. You’ve got to stand aside to let your novel grow.
I can’t better this advice so I’m not feeling too guilty about leaving off for a while until I get a respectable number of words down.
Remember the Saxon salaute in Hangman Blind ? Ge be!
Till next time.
I think this is Day 9 by the way. I’ll keep a tally out of interest.
