The Myth

“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.” – E B White (1899-1985) Writer

It’s easy to make excuses and put your writing dreams on hold for another day in favor of doing something else. Coffee dates with girlfriends and exploring a city that is still brand new to you eat up precious and valuable time. Time which I do not have to waste every single day. Where did my focus and discipline vanish to??? Then I stumbled across this quote and it could not have come at a better time.

Little reminders like this keep me on my path, a sign so I would not lose my way.

Revising a novel is unlike anything I have experience before in my life…hence the fact I am prone to procrastination or downright laziness. But failing to do this is not an option for me so I have done what I should have done a long time ago.

Invest in a planner.

It’s blue by the way…my reasoning being that it would be therapeutic to look at.

But now that I have a plan of attack I plan on having this project wrapped up and sealed with a kiss. (The date at present is secret to only me, I feel like I jinx myself and stunt any creative flow when I share this with others).

As for what will happen after then?

Another creative endeavor no doubt…not after indulging in an expensive bottle of white though 😉

Love and Light

  1. What a lovely post. Good luck with your revision!
    And I love the idea of putting on red lipstick (or any other signal to the Muse that we are writing now 🙂 ) to get in the right frame of mind.

  2. First off I’d love to say thank you for following my blog. It means a lot to me, more than words can describe. To know that someone, anyone, out in the wide world reads my words…. Let the hallelujah chorus ring!

    Next, I want to say that I’ve read all of your posts and liked them. To go searching for that creature within you, the Muse, well, I have to bow before you as a fellow writer. The Muse is a flighty creature, one that likes the darker things in life — whether they are shiny or not, well, does that really matter? 😉 — and it can be very weak if we don’t give it the life and air to breathe.

    Before I go I want to say that you’ve inspired me to write a post about the Muse, mine that is. I hope to see more from you. So until then, fellow storyteller…

    Farewell.
