An interview with myself about writing during the solsc.2012:
When do you write?
I write all day long . . . in my head, on sticky notes, on scraps of paper, in my notebook. Lately, a lot of this scribbling is happening in the car driving to and from work. (Safely, of course!) Eventually after the girls are tucked in bed and most of the chores are completed, I take time in the late evening to write.
Where do you write?
Right now, I'm sprawled on the couch with my laptop, letting the words pour out of my fingertips. Sometimes I sit at the desk and write on the big Mac. It really all depends on the battery life of my laptop! I'm always in the living room to be in the same room as my neglected-feeling husband. (Poor guy. I asked if he wanted to join the challenge . . . )
What do you write?
I've learned to open my eyes, my ears, and my heart to the world around me. There are stories to be told in little moments and big. I write about school life and home life. I write what's in my heart. I write what I want to remember. I write what I may want to forget, but shouldn't. Last year, I had lists of ideas, many posts started, and borrowed ideas from other writers . . . but this year, I'm truly taking it day by day. A 'slice' of this or a 'slice' of that. I'm writing in the moment.
Why do you write?
I write for me. I write to tell a story. To capture a moment. To remember. I write to be a better teacher of writers. To struggle. To practice. To craft. To accomplish. I write because I am a writer.
