My most recent realisation about my writing is this: I write best to a dead line. Especially non-fiction. And I mean a real deadline, not a self-imposed one. They don’t work very well.
Would I respond in a similar way with fiction to a deadline? Would that work? Is that how it is with an editor and a printing date breathing down your neck? Would it inspire me the way it would for an essay or a critique?
How can I use this to my advantage?
No answer to any of these questions yet. I would probably do well to write for a paper. I recently added newspapers to my scope of employees where I might find suitable work, so I guess also that my real life confidence in my writing is growing.
Still struggling with fitting writing in to my life. I think I’m scared, really. Perhaps a deadline would work?
Interesting to note though, scared rearranged spells sacred. Sometimes my fingers tumble it out that way. I think my Muse is trying to tell me something.
