This weekend, I went to a writing workshop. Since I wasn’t writing, I was torn between going and staying at home. I really wanted to stay at home, but I had paid money to go. So I went.
It was fun to visit with friends I hadn’t seen in a while.
It was fun to eat with others who knew about the trials of writing and juggling a full-time job.
It was fun.
And yet, what I expected didn’t happen. I am very careful to pick the writing classes I attend because they usually end up messing up my processes.
In this case, I hadn’t expected much disruption because, frankly, I’m not writing. It’s kinda hard to interrupt nothing, so there. I’ll take that win.
But oddly enough, the workshop on marketing wasn’t all that centered on marketing and squirreled into tips on how to writes a series.
So I learned a few things on marketing and gained a few tips on marketing. More than that, it was nice to hear from a very successful author that some things are okay to do or not do.
As a result, I actually wrote 6.5 pages on Sunday. My goal is 5 pages a day just to ease into a writing routine again and hopefully get those books in my head onto paper.
I’d say that was time and money well spent.
Until next time.
