Been doing this writing thing for a while now (like…a decade). And after you do things for a while you develop some habits. Some good (like writing every day) and some bad.

Like these ones.

1

Thinking up blog posts and story ideas as I fall asleep. Or am trying to fall asleep. Just, is not helpful. There aren’t a lot of options: forget it by morning or blearily write it down and hope that my handwriting is legible in the morning.

2

Getting too attached to pens. Good pens are to be treasured. Good pens are to be fought over.

3

Busting through laptops, either in the literal sense of breaking them or just ruining the life of the battery. I think I’ve had duck tape on all my laptops at some point.

4

Having too many notebooks, using all of them for different things, and then forgetting what I wrote down in what notebook and frantically searching through them for random info like the name of a magazine or a story idea or the ending of book that I may or may not have written down.

5

Forgetting what I wrote.

Does anyone else have this problem? Like you think that I, as the writer, would know my own stories backwards and forwards.

I do not. I frequently forget things and it’s just ridiculous.
