Write, right?

I’ve been blaming the fashion show for not being able to write. Then it was the day after the fashion show, and I was tired (pathetic excuse). On Monday I got lured away from the desk by an invitation to lunch. Today’s excuse was a Year 9 Options meeting for parents at Son’s school.

Writers write. I know this.

They write – they sit down to write even when they don’t feel like it.

So stop making excuses, stop reading The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, go and write.

I just needed to tell myself that.

WRITE.

No. I'm looking at pictures of the Grand Palace ... it's for blogging: all will become clear.

Oh, damn, that's another excuse.

You wrote your blog post...that's writing.

Charlotte said...

Yes, me too. Write, write, write. Good luck with yours, Ms Tea Stains.

There is always an excuse. Being tired is an entirely valid excuse (at least its the main one I use!)...

Hope you are writing!

Lane said...

So many excuses. So little time:-)

I know the feeling.

Hope some words have hit the page today:-)

Writers write. Oh, God, that's me doomed too then.

Sigh.

It sounds as if you've Had A Thought though. That's quite a writerly thing to do?
