Writing is fun.
In fact, many things are considered to be fun.
At least, until someone comes in and tries to direct what we do.
What I mean is, yes if we want to publish a novel one day, we have to make an effort and write regularly. To love writing is to have fun everyday when we write, right? But in the long run, the fingers get tired, the brain gets fed up of the same story. Is this normal? Is writing really for me, you might ask yourselves?
It doesn’t mean that you’re done with writing, that you’ve got annoyed with it.
It simply means that you need to have a break. (have a KIT KAT! xD)
Travel, walk along the beach, play in the snow, watch funny and stupid YouTube videos…
Or just write something else. Forget about the current project you’re working on and imagine another little story of yours… just for fun’s sake. That’s what works best for me when I feel that I’m writing too much and too seriously. So instead of writing for a living, write for what the child inside of you always loved: enjoyment.
Then come back to your manuscript with a breath of fresh air! ^^
As an aspiring writer, I usually write like 500 words a day, except during the weekend 🙂
What is your writing routine?
