The break between Christmas and New Year–the Lull. Are you going to reflect on goals met for 2010, or focus on 2011?
I’m doing neither at the moment. I’ve been told I’m not a dedicated (I take this to mean real) writer because: I don’t write everyday; I’m not producing new just recycling old; too many other irons in the fire; I’m not good enough for New York; I don’t make goals so I can’t measure or push myself. Pick one or several–I’ve decided that no one can set my writing schedule, and if I listen to others, I will never find my own way.
And that’s what writing is all about, isn’t it? Knowing yourself, finding your voice (that’s a whole ‘nuther blog topic), then proceeding how you write best.
Have a blissful lull whether you still have a house full, or like me in a silent peaceful house.
