What’s my reaction when people say they don’t have time to write?
If you want to do it badly enough, you’ll find the time. (Incidently, that’s also my reaction when I hear people say the same about exercising.)
So what’s my reaction when I skip writing and tell myself I just don’t have the time or I’m too tired to do it?
The same. I hold myself to the same standards I hold other people. When I don’t write one day because I’m too tired or too busy, I try to fob myself off with excuses but in the end I sigh and admit that I didn’t want it enough to stick with it that day.
And that’s okay. Until you find yourself skipping every day and never getting any writing done.
“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
If I want something badly enough, I’ll find a way to do it. Does this mean I’ll find an immediate way to do it? Maybe not, but eventually I’ll find a way even if it takes half my lifetime which is sometimes the case.
I think this picture is awesome for ways to stay creative. I wish I could take credit for it but I found it at Candies & Crunches, a fitness blog I follow. Her name’s Olena and she always has awesome information and pictures in her posts. It may seem odd that a fitness blogger addressed the issue of staying creative with writing but, if you think about it, no matter what a person is blogging about, they all need to be creative about it. Here’s a direct link to her post:
