Ready, Set, WRITE!

My middle daughter packed up the little-bitties and headed to the park for an hour. She wanted to give me an hour of quiet so that I can write. So far, I have…

  • let the cat out
  • polished off a bag of potato chips
  • folded a load of laundry
  • cleaned the dirt out from under my fingernails
  • let the cat back in
  • purged a stack of sticky-notes that cluttered my writing area
  • fed the sourdough starter
  • watered my baby rosebush
  • let the cat back out
  • deleted spam messages from my website
  • updated my “books read” list on Goodreads
  • slurped down a glass of tea
  • let the cat back in
  • added “toilet paper” and “laundry soap” to my grocery list
  • deleted a bazillion messages from my email in-box
  • folded another load of laundry
  • let the cat back out
  • thought about what to cook for supper
  • folded another load of laundry
  • …..

Here’s one of the weird things about writing: the more you write, the easier it is to write; the less you write, the harder it is.

I can’t seem to find my inner writer’s “go” button. You know: clock’s ticking, hit Power ON, and – BAM! – you write!

My brain is slow to power up, slow getting into writing mode.

Oh, hang on a sec…

THERE’S the power button!!!

Okay, now I’m in business. Let’s write!
