ROW80 Check-in #83 A Good Reason Why

The writing challenge that knows you have a life.

Why do you do what you do? It sounds like a complicated question, but it’s simple. I write because I love it.

Every time I submit a manuscript and on both of my release days, I seem to ask why I keep putting myself through this, lol There were some things that were easier on this release day simply because I had a better idea of what to expect, but many others went just the same.

I still don’t really know what I’m doing and I seem to be moving forward one stumble at at time. But, with each step on this lonely writing journey, I solidify one fact.

I love to write.

At this point in my career, it’s the very thing I must posses to keep me going. I love my characters. I’m proud of my stories and I desperately want to put more of them out there.

So, that’s it. I’ve passed the latest test and it’s my good reason why I put myself through this crazy train.

The Goals – week-9 results

    • Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- not done.
    • Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- half done. The only writing I did this week was guest post writing. I also did all kinds of marketing or attempted to for my release. These activities kind of sucked all the life out of me.
    • Take care of and be kind to myself- half done. The week started out with a few workouts, but quickly deteriorated into release day haze.

  1. Congrats on the new release! It’s hard to get much else done when you have all that going on, especially if your publisher expects you to do blog tours & such. You have the important thing down, though – we write because we love it!

    • Yes, they expect me to get the word out. I love talking about my books. So, that works for me, but it’s a lot of work to mix with all the worry that is release time. I can’t wait to do it again, lol.

Whatcha thinking?
