Writer Wednesday Blog: Write wherever you are

Happy Hump Day, folks. It's midweek, and today it hit me that no matter what's going on in my life or where I happen to be, I can still write. It is my fall-back, my go-to, my inner peace most of the time. It's also therapy.

And since I happen to be going through physical therapy right now, it is the moment in between grueling sessions that allows me to reset.

Yep, I'm doing inpatient therapy. I had a little scare Saturday night with my right knee. Thankfully, I don't require surgery, but the injury was severe enough to knock me off my leg for a bit, and therapy was called for to get me up on it again. The good news is I'm surrounded by the most awesome group of physical therapists. I'm truly in good hands, and am already up and moving around. In between my physical and occupational therapies, I sit calmly with my laptop and write. This let's my body rest up while my brain takes over. The distraction is essentially a recuperation downtime. By the time I go to the next session, I'm ready. Of course, by the end of the day, I'm fried. Sleep has never been so good.

Now, you don't have to go and beat yourself up just to get a little writing downtime. If you love to write, and it is your sanctuary, make it a personal reward in between performing all the important daily tasks on your to-do list. It's important to pace yourself in anything you do, so if you're dealing with high-stress situations, break them up with a little writing. Plan out 15-30 minutes (depending on your schedule) twice to three times a day where you open up your latest work in progress and jot down a few more paragraphs. Work breaks, commuting (bus or train), lunch at a cafe, the back of the office, out on the patio.....it doesn't really matter because you really can write wherever you are.

Blogging can be lucrative!

In order to make money as a freelance writer, you pretty much have to be busy writing all the time.  Sure, you get to set your own hours, but believe this; you will be working more hours for yourself than you ever did for an employer.  One way to make money as a writer is to blog.

You can blog for yourself or for others, but the best way to earn decent scratch is to do both. (Blogger.com offers FREE blogs)

Work for yourself!

Starting your own blog is a great way to utilize your writing talents while simultaneously advertising your gift for the written word, but it will take some time.  Don't expect to suddenly be rich by espousing your personal opinions.  You have to do the research and find your niche.  Successful blogs are the ones that focus on a particular topic or category.  If you're passionate about food, you might start a blog featuring your homemade recipes, or if you're a talented gardener you might blog about how to grow produce, etc.  Stick to one area to avoid …
