It’s already February and I’m only writing my first blog entry. What’s up with that?
Well, there’s writing, and then there’s writing. What’s more, there’s timely writing, and then there’s timely writing.
No, I didn’t have any publishing deadlines this time around. Yes, I have a bunch of ongoing projects, but they’re in various stages of completion, and I believe I have a good handle on them.
However, that still didn’t free me from time-sensitive writing obligations.
Teachers, instructors, and other educators, you know what I mean.
Writing a good lecture is a very time-intensive, highly focused creative process. Especially the first time you teach a course. Even more so if you really get (or are into) the subject you’re teaching.
So yes, I’ve been writing. Like crazy. But not a word of fiction. On the other hand, I’ve been compensating by getting away from the computer and moving to the crafting table. It’s nice to be making tangible things again.
