To learn as being highly needed

On great hard and even bitter lesson for a writer is to unexpectedly lose a great deal of written text. The lesson taught is to always, with no exception to anything of what would still be used, save duplicates as backup. And where text is in a draft, it is much better to use what will save it only with the selection to save appearing for that to be confirmed.

Progression in spite of distraction

I have enough in my life in recent times being great distractions to my progress as a writer.  Yet I still advance, both with short works for submissions I may make right away, and one large work of novel length, and still there are ideas for making use of in the future.

I look to where others have shared ideas for how to write. If I knew secrets to share for it I might do that. But I look to the creativity in me and I cannot ignore it, this is something in me that needs to grow with exercising it, and still I seek managing it with faithfulness to what truth still needs to be expressed.
