I have often heard the advice that writers should write every day. Believe me, I would like to, but life (aka small children, running a house, moving house, etc.) gets in the way.
I have a question, though: does it matter what you write?
I’m not going to be ridiculous and suggest writing a shopping list is enough. But, those of you who blog and write fiction, does your blog help you with your fiction?
For me, I think I would have to say it doesn’t.
Poetry helps my fiction, but blogging, writing answers to interviews – even if it is about my writing – doesn’t help my fiction at all.
Does that mean I am doing it wrong? I would love your opinions on this. Please comment!
