Guys! I haven't blogged in what feels like forever! There are reasons for this. Well, reason not reasons, but you get the idea.
Basically, I've been writing non-stop because I need to finish my current first draft before I go away on a teen writing retreat (EEEEEP) to start a new draft. There's more about that here, but that's pretty much what you need to know.
I've found that when I write, I tend to have to kind of throw myself into it. I tried to be sane about it and write just a little bit a day throughout the summer, but that resulted in me writing on and off every two weeks. Now my draft is all disjointed and weird. So, yep, I throw myself into it. I should probably try and write it in two weeks or so now that I know this...
Anyway, this had led me to ask you guys a question I've been wondering for a while now: how in the world are you supposed to juggle writing, reading, and blogging? I've seen it done but I cannot understand how. Do they only write a thousand words or so a day? Do they schedule every minute of their day? (And how exactly does one stick with a schedule? I suppose that's a different post.) Seriously? HOW? Sound off in the comments please because I don't want to have to stop blogging and reading whenever I write something. 'Cause hopefully I'll be writing a lot.
