Let’s be brutally honest here. I don’t feel like writing right now.
It’s my last day of vacation. The sun is shining. Taichung beckons nearby, with exotic sights unseen and culinary delights untasted.
This time tomorrow, I’ll be at the airport, preparing to fly back to the bitterly cold Northeast.
But therein lies the secret of successful writers: They write, whether or not they feel like it.
If you don’t make your writing a priority, something better will always come along – and you won’t write.
Maybe your initial efforts will suck lemons. But maybe, just maybe, you’ll find a nugget of gold that will inspire something amazing.
You’ll never find out unless you break out your pen (or pencil, keyboard, etc.) and write.
Go ahead. Spend the next 15 minutes writing whatever comes to mind, and tell us about it below.
