Romance Writers of Australia Blogspot


Firstly I would like to thank you for stopping by and wishing me well. It means so much. I can't wait until I have the official blurb and excerpt to share.

I've just been over visiting RWAustralia's BlogSpot.
reading the interview about Heather Boyd and her daily life as a writer. But I must tell you I am fascinated with her idea of keeping a daily diary. Now why haven't I been doing this? Hmmm....:)

This is exactly what I need. It will allow me to find out how much time I do spend writing (well we know it’s a fair amount of time, around three to four full days a week, some weeks more) but now I'll be able to pinpoint exactly.

Also, it will allow me to find out how much time I spend on blogs, posting, and other areas of my writing life. I am a member of that many writing resource websites, I've lost count. Now I can write them all down and see how much time I spend there.

Another objective is to find out how much time and what I do in marketing my novels. How much time I spend in this area is unknown. I did intend to do a lot more, but as I said, my writing days will be accounted for in a professional way.

Do you keep a diary? If so, what do you put in there?

Well, until next time, my sign is on my door for the next few days. I plan to spend some long hours writing. The intercom/doorbell is switched on and I can see who it is, so if anyone comes knocking and they aren't fire brigade, police or an emergency I won't be answering.

Keep well and happy writing, reading, relaxing, or whatever it is you do to make it your day. Suzanne :)

This is a great idea, Suz. But I'm not sure I could do it. But still it would be good to see how much time I waste away from actual writing!

It is a fab idea. I kept a personal diary for years until about seven years ago and then I stopped. Now, my diary is purely for To Do jobs with writing, short stories etc.

You've just given me the idea. Thank you. Love the blurb on your new book.

Hi Suzanne,
I keep a diary of the sorts. But I forget about entering some days, so I guess it doesn't make any sense. Your post has reminded me. Hopefully I'll be more organised now.

I kept a diary for a few years in my teens - bad idea as my mother found it and read it (that's when I stopped).
