None of these in fact…How many words do you write each day?
I’m just beginning to delve into the world of blogging and trying and get one article a week written on each of my three blogs. I attempt to do it all on “super Friday” when I have a day free.
On that day I can write up to 3 – 4000 words…Wow!
I’m also writing a new book and trying to find the balance between inspiration and perseverance to get it done. I’m at 35000 words so far and am going for at least a thousand more words each day. Most days I manage to do more.
I find that most of the books needs to be prepared within me over many years of my life. There is a “time for everything under the sun”, and, like the labour pains and peristaltic waves that signal the birth of a baby, a surge of dictation from the unconscious announces the happy event of a new discourse.
The battle is finding the balance between inspiration and perspiration, dedication and delight.
William Faulkner said:
“I only write when I’m inspired…but I’m inspired every day.”
To all my fellow bloggers and writers…
May you be inspired every day!
I’ll finish by giving you a link to an excellent article by James Thayer:
