You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you,Ray Bradbury
I have committed to this philosophy when it comes to my novel. For a short time, I focused only on formal editing. Grammar, wording, formatting and completely lost touch with my novel. It didn’t feel good to keep working on something I had no connection with. It even caused me to think things needed changing but they were put in the proper place at the proper time. I was just so distant from my story that I was not aware of the flow and timing anymore.
It’s the same for me with anything. If I step away from something for too long, I lose touch with it and I forget why I started doing it in the first place.
So lately I’ve been trying to get myself to work on all my projects daily. Some days I accomplish more one project than others. It works though because even when I’m doing a little bit, it keeps me in the flow. It keeps me in the loop and in the right mindset that will have me ready for what’s to come.
