Doing Ten Minutes

Pens on Parade

I have over 200 emails to attend to, a house that is an embarrassment today, 1 to 5 Dr. appointments every week for the next 3 months.  However, I must say, The 7 Tips for Better Witing Habits is very helpful in alleviating that guilt, shame and contentment I have for the procrastination of my life’s responsibilities.

Setting aside a specific 10 minutes each day will make your efforts successful.  I can do 10 minutes.  No matter what the project, it is all a part of my declared necessity for my well-being, whether household chores or developing a writing routine.  Allowing for 10 minutes to increase naturally,  writers soon discover that unplanned writing takes on a life of its own.

Ten minutes can easily turn into 20, 30, 45 minutes before you notice…even in “planned” writings, the characters often come to life without provocation…going in a direction the author had no previous though of.  It is a nature of creating the story.

  1. That’s how it starts, slow but sure. What I find helpful is to write with pen and paper and not on the computer. The thoughts flow freely and not you’re worried about typing mistakes. Just write and write and write. 🙂
