ABC- 123- 12 x 12x 12..... Where does the time go?
A- Attitude- Gotta keep the attitude positive even when I am behind, even when I have rejections piling up, and even through the revision cycle that can be daunting.
B- Business- Gotta keep the business side of writing real. Keeping organized and treating my writing as a business will make the end of the year tax time easier and will help me to assess how my writing business is growing.
C- Characters- Gotta keep the characters in my head straight and get them down on paper. I live with so many in my head all the time as I try to figure out what they look like, how they sound, and why they act the way they do. Keeping them straight can get so confusing when I have several story ideas working out in my mind at the same time.
And............Drum roll please.............
D- Drama- Gotta keep the drama on the page and out of everyday life. I can listen to others who have drama in their lives and I can use those ideas for my characters, but I don't want to get drawn into drama any where else...not social media, television, work, or anywhere else that might rob me of my writing time. So those of you who dwell on other peoples real life drama.... put it on the page instead.
Okay, gang. I think that about catches me up on the A-to Z challenge. Look for E and F on Thursday and Friday.... you may get a giggle or an idea for your own writing challenges. See you then.
