Microblog Monday: Writing and Rhythm

Last week, I wrote that ‘the most important thing about writing is finding a rhythm’. Like everything else in writing, that is far easier said than done. I appreciate that now, after a very challenging writing week. 

I am caught between a rock and a hard place, with a project that I care about deeply being necessarily sidelined to make way for something that I am working on. As a form of productive procrastination, if there is such a thing, I am making great strides with Wheels. Having characters and plotline you love gives a project wings, in my view…as well as the wheels that this one is built on.

How do you find a writing rhythm? Do you believe that a writing rhythm is important?

    I think a writing rhythm is everything. Once I take a step back from a project, it takes me so long to get back into it that I feel as if the time off doesn’t balance out the waste of time. When I have two projects, I split the day. I won’t move quickly on either project, but at least things will be moving ahead on both.

    I am glad you are making progress on one project, it must be so frustrating to have that favorite project sidelined. I struggle with getting enough dedicated time to get into a rhythm, but once I do, I think the world could explode around me and I wouldn’t notice. I hope you get time for that project you care deeply about, soon!
