Every time I sit in front of this computer screen
and find myself with no words to write,
I always think of my students.
I try to pump them up about writing,
preaching, “There’s always things to write about!”
Sounds like I need to take some of my own advice once in awhile.
I’m learning my lesson the hard way,
trying to participate daily in NaBloPoMo.
It’s a much harder task than I imagined.
I completely forgot to write yesterday,
and a few days ago I missed two posts because
my internet connection wasn’t working.
It’s feels almost like the routine of going to the gym,
if you miss a day, you’re all out of sync.
Well, I’m out of sync,
and sitting here feeling like I have nothing to write.
I do have to say though, I am learning a lot
about what it’s like to be a real writer.
Sometimes the words just don’t come,
but you have to push through.
Just like during my long runs, when I just feel like walking,
I have to push through.
Warriors don’t quit.
Funny how my running mantras can apply to lots of other things.
Well, here’s me, not quitting.
Even if today all I am writing about is writer’s block.
