There’s so much to write about and so little time to just sit at the computer and get it all out. I love so much to feel that roar of satisfaction after writing something. I feel that most when I’ve just written great fiction. But how often does that happen for me anymore? I’m focused on writing non-fiction because that’s what is currently earning me some money.
Writing fiction requires different skills. It requires the ability to put day to day reality on the back burner and to enable imaginative thinking processes. Fiction writers breathe life into fantasies and create new worlds. There’s something very special and invigorating about doing that, and I miss it when it doesn’t happen.
I know I could force myself to write a flash fiction every morning, just to keep in shape, but when my non-fiction writing income calls, I rush to it as often as possible. And even though NaNoWriMo is coming, I’ve chosen a project that will tread a very uneven path between fiction and the truth. My project is going to be somewhat autobiographical, however I’m aiming towards doing this artistically and with imagination.
I don’t know if anyone here has missed my postings… I am not much into the commenting and networking scene here. Sorry I’ve been busy! Recently my job outside the home ended and I’m finding more computer time than I’ve had in many months. In case you would like to keep up with my online activities, I’ve discovered a site where we can gather together our many feeds and connect with one another. I’ve got several blogs, including this one, and every time I post to one a notification is posted at this site, FriendFeed. If you’re interested in connecting with me there, I hope you’ll give it a try. I’ve got all my blog feeds listed, plus my Netflix queue, my Squidoo lenses (the new ones are announced as I make them), and Twitters, of course. To learn more about FriendFeed see this page: How To Use FriendFeed – on it I’ve got a link to my FriendFeed page. I hope to see you there!
