Things all we delinquent writers should pen one hundred times, if only that didn't keep us from actual writing:
Only writing is writing.
Reading about writing is not writing.
Rereading something you've already written is not writing.
Rewriting is writing, but the obsessive polish and re-polish and re-re-polish of the same eight pages for the last year and half is not.
Outlining is writing.
Taking a walk to think about writing is not writing if it ends in a latte and two pairs of new shoes.
Blogging about writing is not writing.
Blogging about bad haircuts is certainly not writ--
Ahem. Gotta go.
