I think it’s easy to get sidetracked. I talk to authors who complain, “I don’t have time to write.” While I don’t think they’re lying, I do think they’re not speaking completely honestly – to themselves, at least – about what their time is like.
When we settle down and are honest with ourselves, the reasons for not writing aren’t, usually, about time. They’re about fear, or block, or the inner critic saying that we have nothing worth writing. But they’re not about not having any minutes in the day to set fingers to keyboard or pen to paper.
So today, ask yourself this: What would it take for me to get onto the page today?
