A Day in the Life of Writing

How does one write novels? Where does one begin? It's hard. Sometimes it can feel downright impossible. Sometimes I wonder why I put myself through the stress. Truthfully, the most difficult part of writing a novel is starting. There are so many distractions, so many things that seem to be more important than sitting down at the computer and typing away on the keyboard.

Since I've been uploading a lot of videos as of late, I thought what better way to illustrate the difficulties of starting a novel than with a real video of myself at the computer.

Enjoy

So you see... it's not easy, but still it's amazing once the magic happens...

I am truly inspired. Truly. Your family must be so proud.

I bought a copy of Hashbrown Winters and The Guardians of the Hidden Scepter to take to the school summer book swap. The kids get to bring old books from home and swap them for someone else's books to read over the summer. I had to plant some of my favs in there. :) And of course our own copies were not leaving the house.

Carry on, oh inspiring one.

In addition to facebook, solitaire, popcap, and watching my screen saver, I'd say watching blog posts like this one are the #1 distractions that keep me from writing.
