I’ve done more writing in the last few weeks than I have in pretty much my entire life.  And I’m discovering something about what that is.

I’m impatient.  I’ve always written in a short and highly condensed manner.  Eve refers to it as my Hallmark Cards style.  I do it very quickly and then it’s over.

Now that I’m writing slightly longer pieces I’m finding that I haven’t got the patience to really work out what I’m doing.  Everything seems to take a long time to do and I’m trying to get it done as fast as possible.  I see people who write long, well organised, insightful pieces almost every day and I can’t imagine what it would take to do that?  When I find that those same people work full time jobs and have lots of other interests I have to figure that they simply don’t require very much sleep.

But I’ve had a major realisation.  One that could change both my life and the lives of everyone around me.  I’m sure it’s fodder for a bestselling book.  The thing that will make an incredible difference to my writing and to all our lives is…

  3. You could heal your impatience but just tethering yourself to the blog site like I do every night!
