Two weeks have passed without writing a slice.
Ideas hide themselves deeper and deeper in the mind.
The time ticks away before the tablet gets opened.
The time ticks away as eyes stare at the screen.
The time ticks away as the brain reaches for strategies.
Distractions creep in–a quick swipe to peek at emails.
A quick swipe back to the blank screen.
Determination to write a few words and set new goals!
Good for you, Vivian. I am glad you were determined to write a few words today. Thanks for letting us come into your thought-process with this piece.
Ever since reading Big Magic I’ve tried to remember how fleeting ideas can be. I’ve slipped recently, too. It really is so important to capture ideas in real time. Otherwise they flee to someone else.
