Writing about being a lazy blogger

I have been writing a lot last week, only not at this blog or any of the others. A lot of that writing has been utter crap, but at a bare minimum I am showing up at the page every day and worrying less about the money I am making. In my book (pun not intended), that is progress already.

I am discovering the various joys of speed-writing, and at the very least it has been fun.

    Ditto! If we can’t enjoy writing, what’s the point! Besides, I thought being lazy was a prerequisite to being a blogger! 😀

    Lofter, great to see you back here….well, for me being lazy is the pre-requisite to doing everything, and that can’t be all good:)

    Good for you! Fun is important. I mean, so’s money, but fun too! If we can’t enjoy writing, why bother?

    I agree completely. Since I have the luxury of not needing to earn money, I must stop wanting to earn it. Writing is sometimes painful, more of a necessity than an entertainment. My husband says I must write to have fun, but I almost always turn out dark, weird stuff!
