Pick Up the Pen

I sat down to write, but first I decided to read the news.  I might find something I want to write about, so it seemed like a good idea.

Next, I looked over my Facebook feed.  Then I checked my e-mail.  An hour has passed and my paper is still blank.

If I am going to get any writing done, I must put down my phone and pick up my pen.

  1. This happens to me all the time! I have some crazy need to write something and I put it off because I don’t want to be parked in front of the laptop. Days go by, while my journal is right there, and the pen is in my pocket.
    Invariably, when brain finally sizzles and is compelled to write, I use the tiny memo pad to scratch undiscernible notes while driving sixty miles an hour.

    At least I “wrote” this….

    Seek peace,
