Sometimes I am simply blown away by the beauty of this planet. I wish I had an nth of God’s creative abilities. I read yesterday about a typical day in the life of a young adult writer I like who has been very successful. He begins his day with a walk, then he starts his day’s writing about 7AM where he writes five “dynamite” pages from an outline; he takes another walk, reads, does all of his correspondence, rereads the morning’s writing and tweaks it, adjusts his outline for the next day and then goes for another walk. He does this five days a week and generally finishes his 160 page (average) manuscript in seven weeks. Similarities to me: I run before dawn. 🙂 Sally Gerard needs to buckle down.
