"Be Scared. Be Brave. And Write."
Ahh, there's the trouble. I know I waste summer days (but, really, isn't that what summer days are for?). I putz around the house, often not accomplishing the task I started out working on. I get lost on the internet. Play too many games on Facebook. Watch reruns of too many old episodes of NCIS (I'm a sucker for marathons on USA).
SO, how to "find" time to write this summer? Hmmm....
I really don't have any excuses. I just need to schedule time and make sure I stick to it. Mornings are always my best time to work, so I plan to write every morning starting at 8:00. I'm up. I've had coffee. Chloe is in the yard.
I will write. For an hour.
What will I write???? Who will read it???????
I will write what I feel like writing--after all, it's the process, the experience of writing that drew me to this summer camp. I can do this. And, there is that novel I started in November that just might find it's way to my head again.
And I don't care who reads what I write. Not really. I have always written for me. To make myself happy. So I will write for me again, but I will share. My slicing friends are out there and they are the most supportive people I know. It's great we have each other during this camp.
So, it's time to write.
