The inspiration came from a question over at Christian Writers. The day can speed past without one word written, particularly when I work hard or my reasons NOT to write. Have you ever had a reason not to write?
Reasons NOT to Write
- 10. The three year old is awake.
9. Someone needs to cook.
8. We are out of coffee.
7. I have had too much coffee.
6. I MUST retweet!
5. I will write while I watch the game.
4. I will write after the game.
3. My muse is on vacation.
2. I need to make a schedule for my writing so I can get my writing done.
And my number one reason for NOT writing . . .
I have already wasted most of today so I will just stop now and start early and fresh tomorrow!
What is your best excuse for not writing? Or for doing what ever it is that you know to do?
Although this post started in jest, I quickly saw my reality in the words. It can be easy for me to make up reasons not to do what I know to do. There is always an excuse. Procrastination lurks around seeking to destroy dreams. If I choose the excuse instead of pursing the passion then I will miss the blessings.
Just as the sun breaks over the mountain and the light splashes over my face, I am resolved to push procrastination out the door. Thank you for that first blessing of this day!
