  1. This delaying, waiting–whatever we call it is such a nuisance, isn’t it? Why is it we can’t throw all rules, shoulds, can’ts, and wants out the window and just write it down. Why don’t we commit our ideas to the page? I don’t have an answer; perhaps the cosmos does.

    Maybe it’s the dreaded word “fear”? Of success? Of failure? Of wasting our own precious time, noodling drivel that goes nowhere on the page? All I know for sure is when I “go with it” and just write, I’m W*A*Y happier having done it than I was before. So I think we should make an agreement, a pinky-swear pact, that we’ll write write at the moment of inspiration. How does it get any better than that?

    • Okay. A pinky-swear pact it is!!
      Sometimes, though, I think the delay is just wanting to play hooky. The thrill of playing Russian roulette with commitment. And other times it’s my preference of enjoying the brevity of summer before it runs away. And other times still it’s my frustration with the intangible world that drives me away from words – I long to see and touch my creativity – not just mail it to the invisible cloud.
      But, then, there’s fear . . . and . . . boredom.
      Weird, this world of creative writing!
