Hey July – Where did you come from…

Being a writer is about production levels. Somebody once said, “Writers write that is what they do…” You have to sit down and make the effort to be a writer. Keep in mind that sitting down and writing a few pages does not guarantee that meaningful prose will spring into existence. My writing pursuits are split between non-fiction academic articles and works of fiction. Over the last few weeks, I have been focused on writing a novel. Its summer and it seemed like the thing to do. I have been working on plan to knock out 1500 to 2000 words a day. I’m starting to think that my level of production will never return to normal. My new plan involves waking up at 4:00 AM drinking a cup of coffee and writing nonstop until 5:15 AM. I think the plan can succeed, but it will require a certain degree of commitment. I have noticed that it has been easier to write while working in my basement office. Maybe the Microsoft natural elite keyboard makes the difference.
