writing

The main thing I wish I were doing more of at the moment is writing. I had a cram session over the weekend of working on a piece for a science writing competition, which I really stressed about and finally submitted two hours before the deadline. I want to set aside more time for that kind of thing, for the science blog, for writing here, but also for doing creative writing like stories and poetry.

But I wonder if maybe part of that is wanting to be have a creative partner or be part of a creative community. There's a bit of a blogging community here, though it seems ever-dwindling, but then for science writing it feels like none of the scientists I know care much about it. And I've tried building networks from my friends who also like to write fiction but it feels like they never go anywhere. I think I could do a better job of making my own habitual space for writing, but I also feel a strong desire to connect with others over it. I don't know what to do with that, other than keep looking.
