You want to write, but you aren’t writing.
Because . . . first, you have to do this Thing and that Thing needs to get done and this other Thing just can’t wait.
I know how it goes. I know you really do want to write.
And I wonder, if writing means so much to you, why aren’t you writing? Why do you ignore your passion?
Let’s take a look at this. Whenever I have something I want to explore, I do a freewrite.
Use the following questions as “writing starts.”
Start each paragraph with a question. Then write. Just write.
What do I want to do in my writing life?
What do I want to accomplish?
What is stopping me from doing what I want to do, whether it’s writing or something else?
What can I do to make my dream come true?
What changes do I need to make?
I’m pretty happy with my writing life. This is how I make time to write.
