Such a fickle friend. Comes and goes as it pleases. Like a cat, if you call for it to come to you, it turns a haughty head and walks y away slowly, tail in the air. Have a little extra time, decide to pay it some attention and it appears to have gone on an extended vacation. But, have a million important things to do and there it is rubbing up against your leg, begging to be held and petted.
Just do it. Write, write, write. It does not matter if it is good or even if you are working on the project with a deadline. All that matters is that the words are flowing. Sometimes, it is just a way to clean out the ugly sentences and phrases that cling to our dirty minds. Sometimes it is to remind us how much better we can be. And sometimes it is just the little kick you need to get started. There will always be obstacles in your way. There will always be those that tell you to quit wasting your time. Excuses are easily found and self- doubt can be crippling. Sit down, take a deep breath, and write. Tell the damn cat you don’t need her after all.
