So one of the books I read, Social Media for Writers, advised against doing two posts per week until you were able to build up enough reserve topics to be able to sustain such a schedule. However, I have a continuous trend of making stressful life choices and I don’t want to ruin my streak with something as reasonable as pacing myself. Two posts per week shall continue until I either run out of content or drop dead. Whichever happens first.
Today I will be covering some of the most frequent questions I get asked when I say I write.
1. Q: Isn’t writing hard?
A: Yes, yes it is. Sometimes the words just flow out of me like I’m an ink fountain and sometimes each word is ten feet away on a climbing wall without any hand holds.
2. Q: How often do you write?
A: Every day. Even it it’s just one sentence I write something every day and I will continue to do so or die trying. Over the past few months I’ve held myself to the unreasonable standard of 1000 per day that I have not been able to maintain recently.
3. Q: Where do you get your ideas?
A: Honestly I’m still not sure. In a previous blog post I talk about how I thought of the Sword and Shield because of a cat scratch. Some other ideas come from dreams and still others just randomly appear. A bit like magic, really.
4. Q: What is your writing process like?
A: Lots of hair pulling, crying, and cursing. Not necessarily in that order.
5. Q: How long have you been writing?
A: Since I was twelve. I recently looked back at some of my old writing. It was cringe-worthy to say the least.
If you have any questions to me I’d be happy to answer them!
That’s all for today,
Bye for now!
