Sunday, May 27th, 2007 • 3 Comments on Writing About Not Writing
I didn’t get any writing done today. I usually don’t on Sundays, though it’s never deliberately my intention to not write. I just get caught up in doing other things and the writing slips away…
Having a laptop has made writing both easier and harder. Easier, because I can write anywhere, anytime—at least until my battery dies, and then I can keep writing if there’s an outlet handy. Harder, because I have gotten into the routine of going somewhere else to write and now I rarely write at home. Which often means I sit down to write at home (because that’s where I am and I need to write) and find myself doing everything but (including reading newly discovered blogs by far more talented writers—many new links in the sidebar!). Ahh… but I’m complaining about nothing. I didn’t write today and kinda sorta knew I wouldn’t. I’ve been good all week, I can take the day off.
However… tomorrow is a holiday and I suspect I won’t be writing tomorrow, either. Mondays are usually my most productive writing day (fueled by guilt from taking Sunday off, I’m sure), but this Monday will be about grilled food and sunshine, not word counts and coffee.
Imagine my guilt on Tuesday. Woe!
