Write Every Day
Kirsten Ogden at The Kenyon Review has taken all the advice. But what about putting it into practice?
I started off well, but I guess morning writing wasn’t my thing. Neither was afternoon writing, it turns out. (Neither was writing at night!) Go figure. Sitting in that chair is hard. Plus, its been 4 months of rejections for me; no one wants to publish my stuff. I don’t send out often, but last year I did have a lot more luck. It’s a numbers game, I know. But I find it hard to write without an audience. I can usually at least count on my sister to listen to a new poem or story over the phone, but last week I called to read her something and she sounded–distracted. Turns out Wrestlemania! was the focus for the day. How can I compete with Wrestlemania?
