I Think I've Been Here Before

I can't help but think, and stop me if I'm wrong, that I spend way too much time reading and thinking about writing than doing the actual writing.

Ah, you've noticed too. Going by the fact that the departure of Google Reader must have had a much larger effect on me than I cared to admit. Now I am out there spending even more time going to actual sites to read then having them carefully sent to me.

None the less, I still manage to read my fair share about it which leads to my thinking about it. Blogs by Chuck Wendig, Carol Tice, The Renegade Writer and I don't know how many others I've come across the past several months have been in my head. 

It's both a good thing and a bad thing. Good that it keeps my interest up there. Bad in that I don't quite get around to writing as much as I should be doing.

Don't get me wrong, the day job does include it's fair share of writing moments, so I am still putting words on a computer screen. (some of them even get to be seen by more than 2 people).

So the rest of this year will be about my getting more words on screens, in various formats, especially this blog. (I mean it this time. Pay no attention to those other times when I said I meant it and didn't quite make it happen. That was the old me- despite I'm older now than I was, go figure)

Anyway, I digress.

So tell me, what tricks do you have to keep yourself writing after a rather lengthy time away from the keyboard? Put them in the comments and I might just learn a few things.
