All my writer friends are working (doing the verk) blogging, writing morning pages, doing timed writing (500 words 30 minutes)

I feel like a slacker. I finally have begun engaging with three pages of morning (ish) page writing. Only because stories were fading away from lack of engagement daily. I find daily commitments either become obsessive chains (like ODC) or I prevaricate and procrastinate until the deadline is gone and the burden of guilt eases.

However if I am to write then I must throw off being ODC and procrastinating. I finally am finding a daily process of engaging in some writing “verk” and it’s not as unpleasant as I imagined it to be. Story seems to flow in and out of the writing. I may start with mundane details but then an idea creeps in and as I follow along other ideas, revelations & visual scenes come into play.

I don’t foresee myself becoming anything famous or clever but I am enjoying being a storyteller. A lot.
