It’s Not Always Right To Write! Although I Could Be Wrong…

 

I saw a commercial the other day with a guy who was playing a novelist. In the commercial he is at the old typewriter just staring into space with his hands ready to type away and nothing but a blank page. He just kept on and on gritting his teeth and waiting for something to come to him. He was not enjoying himself. I don’t know how people do that. Just decide its ” writing ” time and take a seat. To me that’s like stopping at the restroom at certain times, regardless if it was the right time..lol

I am aware that some of you may do this also, and I am here to help you through that. You see if you have to knock on creativity’s door – it  cannot be natural. Setting a time to write but not having a spring in your step to get going is missing out on something. If you are not experiencing a creative cerebral takeover that you cannot wait to put into words then check yourself. Maybe it just is not meant to happen.

We have all finished a post and as we are wrapping it up we take a quick scan and go  ” why did I even bother “. That’s why I have 200 drafts. Nowadays I don’t even bother unless something earlier struck me, or I have something fresh on board. Basically  ” If it ain’t tight, I don’t write “. It feels so much better when you have that feeling that what you are writing serves some purpose.

I know that I am not always right. I have my share of posts that I think will bring the WordPress CEO calling to tell me how much he loved it but in actuality the like section is quite lonely. That is okay because I enjoyed writing it and that sure beat trying to finish a post quickly because you just are not into it. I am not saying to decrease your writing or not post as much. I think I am trying to tell you not to settle. Make yourself dig deeper until that burst of energy to get writing is back.

 I say only write when it is right and write when its tight!

  1. Sometimes I just hit dry seasons. It’s helpful to journal, walk, or simply have a little peaceful reflection. I try to publish at least once a week, but if I have nothing to write, I will miss a post.
