Last week was not an unusual week. I don’t recall anything in particular taking up my time, but the reading of seven books (Poetry) and a couple of medical tests. Why am I digging back through last week? I have written nothing except two poems (first drafts). I haven’t touched any of the two stories I am working on. And today I feel like I am going through withdrawal. It’s a horrible feeling.
I know I am no great writer, and I doubt I’ll ever win any prizes, but there is something in me that falls to the pits if I do not write. I have to get back to work and soon. Thankfully I am much closer to getting glasses that actually work for me. I know the hoopla concerning the back and forth with lenses etc has had some to do with the lack of production. But I could have plodded on. I didn’t.
I’m making a promise to myself today. I promise that I will get back on track by putting together a daily schedule and keeping it. With that in mind here is a free book:

What about you? Do you have a daily or weekly writing schedule? How do you feel when you haven’t written in a while?
