Friday Morning FYI – 6/3/2016

Welcome to your Friday Morning FYI – my chance to share observations/wisdom/rants in short, easily consumed form.

I’m writing this to you from my favorite coffee shop, on a morning where I had day job work to do, to shop for some fishing tackle (rw shopping, not interwebz shopping), and to pack for a weekend camping trip. Why am I mentioning this? Because I got the work and packing done before 9AM, came to the coffee shop to write, and will go buy my tackle in a few minutes. In fact I’m only taking the time to write this post because I’m done writing for today (seven hundred words to finish a chapter). Nuts? Not at all. That’s this week’s FYI:

JK Rowling said, “Be ruthless about protecting your writing days…” I all too often hear writers complain about having “… just too much else to do.” Bull. There’s a lot of hours in the day. I know writers who get words down at 5AM. Get up earlier, have some coffee and breakfast, and get typing.

Or do you presume to tell JK she’s wrong?


Thanks for reading,
