Hello people in the blogosphere, it’s been awhile since my last post and I’m here to tell you why.
I’ve been writing. Writing like a super-star.
And while I wish I could say I’ve been working on my WIP, I actually have not touched it in more than a month.
“Boo,” you say, “Boo mason, why aren’t you working on your book?”
I really can’t give you details on the book, but let me tell you fellow writers, ghostwriting is a strange and wonderful process. It is also hard work, and the deadline is tight. I put in anywhere from 4 to 8 hours a day writing and that is on top of my two other jobs.
But writing this project has given me all sorts of new insights into writing—in particular I’ve gained insights into the nature of procrastination and earned some secrets to writing on-demand instead of waiting for the ole muse to show up.
It’s taught me tons about working with deadlines breathing down your neck, about writing in a voice that isn’t really what I consider “mine”, and taught me that to be a writer you have to be able to suck it up and put in the time.
Stay tuned for some interesting stories from my adventures in ghostwriting… when I come up for air, that is.
