Time to Write

When is a good time to write?

I have no idea. Especially if you are speaking of hours and minutes. You cannot wait for the spirit to strike, that much I do know. Because you never know IF it will strike. The best way to get that to happen is to sit and write. Doesn’t matter whether it is on paper, phone, tablet, computer or even in the air. You just need to write.

For me, a good time is the morning before I start to dally with everything else I can think of. You will notice I did not name a time. Morning runs from 12:01am to 12:00 noon. Gives me some leeway.

You know: dishes, laundry, an NCIS re-run, or even* gasp* exercise. The last never pops into my mind unless I am trying my best to want to write. That means I am getting desperate not to write.

I love to write. I love the high of getting my thoughts down exactly the way I want to say them. I love having others read and comment on my writing.

So, why is it so hard to do it? Guilt for not doing it sooner. Fear of appearing unintelligent. You know, better to keep quiet and be thought a fool than to open your mouth, or your computer, and remove all doubt.

The list can be long.

In my case, the primary problem is laziness. I somehow, just don’t want to take the time.

I am working on it.
