Writing-writing.

There’s writing and then there’s, you know, writing-writing, important writing, manuscript writing, the Real Stuff.

Apart from the occasional day when I deliberately step back from EVERYTHING to do with writing, I judge the success of my day by my page count. Writing-writing, that is.

It counts for nothing if I did the laundry, stacked the wood, washed the car or painted a room. It matters not one iota if I scrubbed out the bathroom or vacuumed the floors. I don’t care if I end the day muscle sore and tired from physical labor – Yes, it’s good to have those chores done, but “What have I done today?” still gets answered, “Nothing!” unless I can include a page count.

I rather think that’s a serious sign of being a writer.

Happy writing, everyone.

Cheers!

    I love this post because I am still struggling to get to the point where I can focus on making writing progress every day and not letting all the chores and social responsibilities get in the way. Good luck on your word count!
