I laugh when I think about my history with schoolwork. Though I was a decent student, I was never keen on homework. Instead, I would write all sorts of fictional stories and journal entries (still have many of them). Literally, I would avoid homework to write.
Things haven’t changed much. Now I avoid work to write. Well, let me be clear, I don’t skip work; I just have a hard time with the work that I bring home from the office. I tend to write and avoid the work that helps support me as a writer.
I’m sure I’m not alone.
But there are times when I don’t want to write, because I feel guilty about writing. It brings me such joy (insert scolding teacher image). So I probably shouldn’t be doing it (insert angel on my shoulder). Hmmm.
Well, phooey. I’m going to write even if it’s wrong or “write.”
