Ask anyone who worked with me: I am a study in organisation. If anyone couldn’t find their copy of something, they knew I would have it. I was always the first to have my student reports in, and my programming and registration were used as an example of how to do it right.
But retirement has changed that somewhat – well when it comes to my writing anyway. When other people are relying on me (like with Authors Tale), not only am I on it, I’m usually ahead of schedule. But my own stuff – particularly this blog – I’m a total amateur!
Why is that? Is it because I don’t have a work schedule to stick to? In that case, why can’t I just make writing my work?
I think it may be because I love to write and, while I didn’t hate my previous ‘job’, I don’t want writing to become a chore. What I have to do is work out a way to look forward to the elements of becoming a successful writer – like social media and blog posts – so that I can indulge in the writing of the stories.
I’m open to suggestions!
