Writing everyday is not the easiest of things, unless you have a more or less regular life. Not even then. It is about discipline, about perseverance, and maybe even a little self-belief.

Blogging everyday is even tougher, because it requires you to be both online, and writing every day. Yeah, I know all about scheduled posts, but that is a wee bit of cheating, in my opinion.

Discipline has never been one of my strong suits, and this blog as well as Daily (w)rite have suffered as a consequence. But hopefully, in the coming days, as I get physically fitter and mentally more together, posts would be more regular.

For the time being, I leave you with a link to formatting your short story manuscript for submission. Excellent guidelines.

Till next time, happy writing, folks!
