Why I’m not writing today… It’s SPRING!
Who’s with me on this?
I find it very difficult to think about writing (at least about anything not relating to growing things), when it’s a beautiful day outside, don’t you? Took lots of pictures of my garden, which I will share in later posts. Looked at my manuscript, and thought about going back to bed, but the dang garden is blooming and my manuscript is not. Lot of digging and planting of seeds going on, and here I am, stuck inside. Could take my laptop outside, but then I am sure husband will expect me to join in the bracing outdoor activity, when I should be digging into polishing my next memoir. I am in the rewrite stage, and as you probably know, writing is solitary, whereas, rewriting usually involves other people and their harebrained ideas about my writing. I’d much rather be digging in my garden—anything to avoid writing. Or for that matter, I’d much rather be cleaning house. Much. Problem: I already did my exercises for today, which is why I’m thinking about going back to bed. Or at the very least, planting seeds, which doesn’t require too much exertion. Time to do a little freewrite to get the old creative juices flowing, go back to writing, finish my manuscript before May. What kind of incentives to write do you use when nature calls? I need help here!
