Are you too busy to write?

        Some of us say that we are too busy to write. Most of our day
       seems to be filled with activities that take us from one activity to
       another, and we just can’t seem to focus long enough to write. This
       is especially the case for individuals who work full time and are
       trying to fit writing into their busy lives.
      
       If this sounds familiar, today’s reflection is for you. I have
       worked full time most of my life and I also got a lot of writing
       done too. That is because I made sure that I spent an hour or two
       writing each and every day. In fact, I usually tried to wake up a
       half an hour or an hour earlier, and I would just sit and write. That
       is what gave me all of my success as a writer and it also kept me
       sane.
      
       I find that I get very angry and unhappy when I take a few days
       away from the desk and I don’t write. I feel very motivated to
       write, and when I don’t, I feel that something is missing in my life.
       So, I just sit down and write, and then I feel so much better.
      
       Writers can’t afford not to write. We should never feel too busy
       to write. If we aren’t writing regularly, its because we don’t have
       our priorities in the right place. So, take the time today to re-
       evaluate your writing priorities. You will feel much more fulfilled
       and you will be happier. And one added benefit? You will get
       some writing done every day and this will really add up by the
       end of the year.
      
       ~ Happy writing!
