I'm not without discipline (despite what I've written in the foregoing paragraph). I meet every deadline. I am quick to customer queries about my games. Commissions get done promptly. But my own writing? It does get worked on, but not at a steady pace. I wish I could be one of those writers who can demand of themselves a certain amount of words per day. There are days when I write over 2,000. There are days when I'm lucky to write 20.
I am finding writing this blog daily very helpful. It is forcing discipline on me in a gentle way. There's no consequence to not writing except personal guilt. Guilt works. Self-imposed deadlines work to a degree. I need to move forward and stop poking in the quicksand.
