On Writing

So as always this post has taken me a few days to write.  And the whole point of this post was to talk about the fact that you have to keep writing everyday in order to be a better writer.

Guess I need to follow these rules a lot more often.

What I originally wanted to say was that I find it very hard to find enough time in the day to write.  I usually have time in the evenings but never feel like writing then.  The mornings are way to hectic and when I am at work I am usually much too busy.  Plus writing a story about sex is probably not a good idea on a work computer.

I have often thought about buying a new computer so I can write while I am sitting in my living room.  My last laptop is pretty much unusable and my desktop is in my bedroom which creates problems if my wife wants to go to sleep early.

I have not had a need for a laptop for the most part since I usually bring my work computer home on the weekends and use that for everything else.  But since one of my goals for 2015 is to write more I need to find an alternative.

Originally I thought about buying a new desktop and getting a tablet for the living room.  I can attach a keyboard and write whenever the urge presents itself.  And that is what I will probably do at some point but finances have not been the greatest right now.

The other problem is inspiration.  Sex has been non-existent for me for a little bit and every bit of inspiration I have had in the past has also been hard to find.  As many know I typically try to write from experience, but if I lack experience recently then what do I really have to write about.

I keep up on the reading of the other blogs and I see that some incorporate everyday activities into sexual stories, which is what I may have to do.  But again recently things have been a little slow in that aspect.

A few months ago I formed a LLC for some of the side work that I do.  I was designing websites briefly and still have some work that I do.  Part of the reasoning I formed the LLC, or reformed since I had one about 5 years ago, was to start writing more stories.

I was briefly a news reporter and magazine writer, so I thought maybe I could start writing again and make some money at it.  I could create the website, build the content and hope that advertisers would want to post their products.  At the very least if I could make a few hundred dollars from the site I would be happy.

Of course this is the problem that I have.  Finding the time to do all this.  If writing takes a long time for me, how will I be able to design my own site and build the content.

My twitter feed is filled with people that make a pretty good living at writing, especially erotica.  But they tend to write every single day.  Maybe I need to just set a time and a place for me to do my writing and stick to a schedule everyday.

I have said this before, that I need to update the blog much more often and I go a few days and keep it up but after a week or two I am back to my old habits.

One day I will figure this thing out.  Hopefully sometime soon.

  1. I have the same problem Bader. There are only so many hours in a day. Don't beat yourself up over it. You will get there. Maybe I will too ;)
