Not quite 300 words written today. I'm really slacking by the standards of that other Stephen King. Personally, I don't mind much...worked another 12 hour day at my day job, so it's good to just sit and relax.
Bought an audiobook today...yay. Found it online for a few bucks, and it sounded interesting. I don't read nearly enough to make myself a decent writer, and my half-hour drive to work is perfectly suited to listening to audiobooks. All the books and blogs on writing I see say the same thing...if you're going to be a decent writer, you have to read a bunch. It makes sense, really. If you're going to be a decent anything, you have to read a bunch, and it's particularly important for writers to see how other writers lay out their plots, introduce and expand their characters, and begin and structure their books.
Just like today was a short day of writing in which I nevertheless got some writing done, it's also a short day of blogging. I'm looking forward to a much shorter day tomorrow, but my wife leaves for two weeks Sunday morning so I'll likely not get much writing at all done. But that's OK. I write to live, not the other way around.
