New Year resolution: Shut down any social media that distracts me from writing.
My life is busy enough that I have very little time for writing. I have found that more time in November and December were spend scrolling through Facebook than writing or even thinking about writing. My excuse was that family obligations and work had me so stressed that I needed mindless entertainment; but, that is just an excuse.
I find that I only have about 1/2 an hour a day for my writing. That is not enough time to accomplish much, but I am working hard on a new outline for my book. It should only take me about 6 months to get the outline complete at this rate.
I have "Discovered" Grammarly. At first, I tried to use the "Free" version and was thrilled by the assistance it gave me with simple grammar problems. HOWEVER, I was frustrated by the number of "Advanced Issues." I spent days trying to edit out those Advanced Issues without any guidance and just kept creating more issues. Ultimately, I spent the money for a 3-month membership.
It has been months, I mean months, since I have been on this site. My professional life had taken over my personal life and my writing life. I am beginning to come up for air after 5 months of struggling.
Now, I just need to get the creative juices flowing again, and write.
