Getting Back in Writerly Shape
It seems like writing really is a muscle that you have to exercise or it weakens. I haven't really thought about it that way before, but as I try and get back into the routine, I definitely feel rusty and much less satisfied with what I'm producing.
The good side is that there is a simple solution: writing every single day, even if its just a few hundred words. If I'm not working well on the novel that day, then I'll work on a short story. Or a picture book manuscript or song lyrics. Something.
And then we'll be back to normal in no time :)
