Write what you love and love what you write.


Can you love and hate something at the same time? Sure you can. For instance, I love writing, and yet I hate it. It’s so frustrating not being able to write all day, every day. For me this leads to lethargy, so that when I do have the time, I don’t have the inclination or the energy.


As for marketing my work… pfft!


The love affair between me and my writing has more than its fair shares of ups and downs. In spite of this, it’s a path I’ll stick to, until I’m either too senile to pick up a pen, or I’ve gone to that great writing group in the sky. πŸ™‚

    It seems as if I am not the only one…My thoughts exactly this past week! Seems like all I’ve been doing is marketing, promoting, getting my ducks in a row. That doesn’t leave too much free time to put pen to paper!

  3. I have a love/hate relationship with writing. It seems my urge to write comes at the most inconvenient times, like when I’m at work. By the time I get home from work and make dinner, I’m too tired to write. Then on the rare occasion I have lots of writing time, I spend my time playing spider solitaire or watching Law & Order SVU.

    Having all the time in the world to write gets old really quick. Take it from me. When my disability progressed to the point it is at now, and I wrecked my car, I had all the time to write in the world. It was fun when I finished my first book and by the third I was burnt out. I enjoy the few hours I have to write after babysitting for 11 eleven hours — I enjoy just knowing that I have X amount of time.

    • I know what you mean, Nina, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. That said, I’d like to have the choice, and not be stuck doing something I hate, five days a week. A few years ago, I was made redundant from my job, I got quite a good pay off, which enabled me to spend two years doing what I wanted, amongst which was writing. I loved it.
