Writing Time, Part 55. Twenty Minutes Outside the Writer’s Cave

barefeetwithapplesmall

Creating a daily platform to support a writing career connects us to the larger prospects of authorship, like the publication and marketing of our work. Here are three five- or ten-minute practices I’ve set in place, to hit daily. Morning works for me. And, the awareness that each of these could take all day, all week, or even the rest of my life, prompts me to set a timer and move on when it sounds.

  • social media & connecting with other writers, editors, and publishers
  • banking and bookkeeping
  • learning something new about writing, social media, design, etc

Every writer’s schedules, interests, and mileage will differ, as always, but touching base with writing communities, financial sustainability, and professional development can keep us active in the greater world outside. Sure, writers sometimes feel like metaphorical cave-dwelling hermits, but even real cave-dwelling hermits communicate with nature, eat, and try to be the best hermits they can be.

 I hope you’ll have another brilliant writing week. Cheers Mel
