I don't, either, although I wish I could have the time needed to dedicate at least 30 minutes daily to writing...

I write in my journal...That's a melodrama/novel/soap opera all in one. XP
Shakespearian tongue-twister:

To sit in solemn silence
In a dark, dank dock
In a pestilential prison
With a lifelong lock;
Awaiting the sensation
Of a short, sharp shock
Of a cheap, chippy chopper
On a big black block.

Me? Writing every day? In my dreams! That's impossible for me...

I write everyday, if not on paper, or on the laptop then I write and rewrite in my head. Sometimes its actually funny. I can write a cwhole chapter in my head!
I write because there's nothing left to say...

Sadly, no. But I'd love to be able to.

I write every say, seeing as I typically jot down at least a paragraph of a story at some point during the day.

I don't write lots every day, though, because if I did I think that I may die. >.< But yeah, either bits and pieces that I'm not happy with, a chapter that I'm not happy with, a stanza that I'm not happy with, or some back-and-forth dialogue between characters as a reference for a scene or chapter. Needless to say, there are minimal bits and pieces sprouting forth at least once every day.


Spoiler! :
I'm writing dialogue between NaNo characters so that I get used to using them *so didn't write 'yum' by accident and had to come back and edit it out* even as we speak. Assuming that counts. ;)

I don't have time to write everyday. Everyday I have moments when I think to myself ' I need to write this down!'.

I don't think it is natural to be able to write something every single day.
I know that when I was a little younger, I used to try too much my brain just would not allow it.
For myself, I only just came from an over 5 month writers block, maybe it was longer, I sort of lost track.
No matter how much I sat down and tried to write something, I just couldn't.
Sometimes I try and form stories in my head or have great ideas, but I don't write them down and then might forget about them. If I forget I just put it down to it not being a good enough idea and just move on from it.
But not writing everyday is definitely not something to worry about.
Its good to give your brain a rest and not over work it.
You might end up having a major writing block like I did.
I couldn't even get myself to write something for school assignments, and I kind of had to seeing as that class was all about creative writing.
But just chill, not writing everyday is a good thing.
Everyone needs a break once and a while.

I write every day I can. If nothing else, I'm motivated to continue my story.

I try to, sometimes its just a couple paragraphs during science class, but I try.

I don't.... I've got band, which DOMINATES my schedule, plus homework plus church plus my [puny] social life.

Plus I get massive writer's-block attacks... I don't personally think it'd be psychologically good for me to strain myself to write during those.

I do, I love writing my novels, I usually write about 2 pages a day, which is enough for me and it helps me set a task or focus! :wink:

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
