I am working on writing with integrity. For me, this means that I am paying attention to the ways I "use" cultures, characters and plot. I want what I am writing to reflect my worldview and not simply be writing to write or writing by a formula. Some days this is easy and flows. Others it is a super challenge and exhausting. This morning I grabbed a few hours to write that I did not know were available to me. What a pleasure! I was very productive and also creative. This is what keeps me coming back to this particular novel. I love to write just to write but today I was also writing with a purpose.
