This week I struggled to find my desk, and I struggled to write. Life had different ideas regarding my plans. The challenges the world presented wouldn’t deter me. I had to write. I found a pocketful of minutes, an unoccupied chair, and realized my unscheduled writing session was now or never. Laptop balanced on my knees, ignoring distractions, my fingers tap keys, words appear, and a story materializes. My surroundings fade from my field of vision, I focus, and the story sings in my ear. I write until my pocket of precious minutes expire.
This week waiting for my muse to arrive was a luxury I couldn’t afford. Undeterred, I found inspiration. I dug for the discipline to write no matter the circumstances. It didn’t matter if my writing was good. I’ve done my best to meet my daily obligations and the promises I made to myself.
How have you overcome your writing obstacles this week?
Keep on writing.
