Excuses be gone!

I haven’t written in a while because I have work. No, you don’t understand, I am tired when I reach home on the evenings and all I want to do is sleep. See, it’s a routine thing. I don’t have enough time to write. I have this and I have that and I blame anemia!

I recently sat down and pondered about my writing. I love writing! It’s a passion that I’ve embraced when I was as young as six (back then, my imagination was wilder than a runaway stallion!) and it’s a talent that I am thankful to God for. However, I don’t see myself as a future published author, so I don’t have to write every day to practice my skill.

Right. I am just full of excuses, aren’t I?

That’s why I’ve decided to get rid of all the excuses in my writing life!Β 

If I can make time to source YouTube for inspiring, fun, educational, and family-oriented videos, then I can certainly make time to write even if it’s just for one hour. If I can make time to partake in an activity after work, then I can certainly get some writing done even if it’s just one sentence. I have so many unfinished stories that I am itching to get to, but because of excuses, I let them die. From today, there’ll be no more excuses when it comes to my writing.Β

I apologize for this rant, but it had to be done. I trust that you’re having an awesome Sunday nevertheless. God bless. πŸ™‚

  1. Yay! You go after that writing bug, EM!! I hope you can hear me cheering. It’s always an important step to declare that you want to make room for writing in your life.

  2. I’m glad you ranted πŸ™‚ I have a lot of writer friends that I’ve seen SO many stories (close to being completed novels) drop. They lose ambition, and hope. On my other blog site, I questioned writer’s block. What is it really because it seems to be a crutch for many writers. We are ALL going to struggle, that’s…well that’s just part of writing πŸ™‚ But we all don’t give up. Some do, some don’t. There’s a deeper goal within us. How far are we willing to push ourselves? How far are we willing to search out what needs to be written?

    For me, God is my answer, and Provider. He’s the reason I was able to write three novels before I’m working on the novel I want to be published as my first book. He taught me so much along the writing journey, my blogging journey, and He continues to do so! It’s incredible!

    I did and do what you spoke of. When I struggle, I compromise. “OKay, try to write half of the page. No? Okay, how about a paragraph? How about one sentence?” The goal is to always move forward no matter how small!! πŸ™‚ I believe in you.

    1. I had to because I don’t suffer from writer’s block. I’ve just been making excuses for why I’m not writing. I have plots drawn up and everything, but it’s just to sit down and actually write. I completed a few novels, but I am not looking to publish them, so I always make excuses and I decide that it needs to stop.

      God is always the answer, but I guess He has other plans for me at the moment because my current writing inspirations are nowhere near writing a novel. >.< But thank you, T.R. for your kindness. ❀

      1. Blogs, short stories, poetry, etc. There is so much related to writing aside from novels and publishing novels. But the key is determination and not letting excuses win. I think your honesty is something we all can relate to. πŸ™‚

      2. Absolutely! I had to kick excuses to the curb. I am currently making a writing schedule as we speak because some busy times are coming up.
