Does blogging count? Actually I accidentally started a new novel today which really ticked me off. Sure I wrote a great deal… just not on the novel I want to be working on. So a blogging break and then back to what I should be working on even though my brain is insisting I think about that fantastic new world and character. Sigh. Writing is the easy part… it is the editing and rewrite that takes a bit of effort especially and bright and shiny new stories push their way in. ‘look at me! Look at me! I’m way more interesting than editing that existing story!’ I sure hope just writing makes me a better writer but I suspect it is writing and editing and writing and editing and then editing and editing and then writing.
