I was browsing through blogs today, looking for a topic and saw Nathan Bransford's post on writing every day.
I thought it was a good post topic.
There is absolutely, no way, whatsoever, in any circle of Hell, I would be able to write daily.
How'd you like that sentence, eh?
It's true though. I have lots of different characters and stuff to maintain and when one of them shuts up, I have wheedle stuff out of them. OR I have to just kick back and let my mind work in the background and fix a problem/unlock a puzzle. If I were to write every day, I'd literally have to live in my fantasy world.
It'd be fun. But. No.
It's bad enough that I have lots to do now and trying to prepare for things. I'm working on drawings, my maps and all sorts of other little goodies and that takes time away from things like family. Which sucks.
It also takes away from household chores, but that doesn't suck as much until I look around and go, "Gah!!"
Some of those dust bunnies are freakin' scary. And carry weapons. I do have swords in my house. Have you ever met an armed dust bunny?
Anyway. There's lots of reasons to write daily, but just as many (I think) to not write every day. My brain just doesn't function that way. I can't force myself out of a block. I have to work on it while doing other things. Let it fulminate in the back of my mind. Half the time, it is hard for me to write about something completely different because that creative part of my mind is already occupied. So yes, I will go for long stretches of time where I don't write. But once I hit that, 'Aha!' moment, I'm off like a shot.
So do you write daily or not? What's your take on this?
