What do I mean by that?
Well, it's like this. During the month of April while I was doing the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I used the theme of "My A to Z Wish List." As the month went on, I realized there were a lot of things on my list I could actually accomplish if I had more time. And there were a lot of things I wish for that never made it to my list--like more time to read for fun, more time to garden, and more time in general (as in total days on this planet).
What do we do to make more time? The usual. We get more organized, make a plan, identify priorities, etc. etc. etc.
And we give up doing stuff that doesn't matter...or that we don't enjoy so much...or that simply wastes the precious hours we have to do what matters.
All that led me to wonder if writing was one of the things I should give up. I gave it serious thought.
For about five minutes.
The mini-meditation on the joys and benefits of the writing life was useful. It gave me new resolve. Now that the A to Z Challenge is over, I'm ready to get back to work. That feels good.
My guest blogger tomorrow is David Freed, author of Flat Spin, a Cordell Logan mystery. I hope you'll join us.
