As I mentioned in last Friday's post, I was scheduled for arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday of this week - all went well. However, I do have to take it easy for several days, which means staying off my feet for as much as possible. It would have been a great excuse to take a break from writing, but I felt if I went down that path I might lose the momentum I've worked so hard to maintain.
I believe it's important to write every day. But there are a variety of ways to do that. Here's my list to maintain consistency as a scribe:
*A blog post
*A magazine article
*A journal entry
*A short story
*A chapter for a new project
*A letter to a friend
*A to-do list
*A comment on your favorite blog
*A new bio
*A query letter (Which is one of the items I worked on this week!)
The possibilities for the scribe to maintain a daily writing regime are endless. But, why is it important to write in a variety of ways?
Because sometimes location, commitments, or physical predicament require us to pursue our writing in a different fashion. Then too, it's good to just mix up our routine occasionally - it can rejuvenate creativity. (In my case, my routine got mixed up for me!) It can also ensure a scribe's passion for writing remains fresh, not humdrum.
Woody & Stick have been my constant companions this week. I was doing so well that, unfortunately, I overdid my post-op exercises and strained my left leg. Must adhere to my surgeon's instructions better!
