There are some days I just don’t feel like writing. At all. I know I have to force myself to do it, because in the end I’m usually glad I did. Right now, for example would be one of those times. So, why don’t I feel like writing? Hummm…I don’t know. Is it that I don’t really have anything to say? Totally not. I have a lot to say…Is it that I don’t have the time? Well, that’s not really it either. I have a glorious 2 hours of alone time in a quiet library right now.
So, why don’t I feel like writing? Well, I guess like anyone, I need a break. While it doesn’t seem all that “hard” to write, it is. At least if you do it “right.” Perhaps I need a break so I can clear my creative slate. Perhaps a break will allow me to experience life because then I will have more material to pull from to make me feel as though I am really experiencing what I am writing about. Because, you know, it is experience and living life that makes one a good writer. You see, one cannot write well in a vacuum.
When it really comes right down to it, I feel like reading. I feel like organizing. I feel like a nap. I feel like….yes, a nap.
