Sometimes, Just Write

28 May

By Nesher Ehrman

We all lead busy lives. Appointments, chores, tasks, upkeep. Jobs. We all have stuff we need to do, a hundred juggling whirling up and down. So what we like to sometimes has to take a backseat, a little time on the bench.

And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Being busy is good, and just because you like to write doesn’t mean that you have to be doing it all the time, every minute of every day. That’s not what I’m saying.

On the other hand, the above paragraph is problematic primarily because it’s true – you really do have other obligations. And if you find it hard to write past procrastination, you might take things too far and not write at all.

So don’t be too ambitious. Don’t make every month write-a-novel-month. Don’t promise yourself too much, because all you’re doing is putting pressure on yourself, and any writer will tell you that strained writing is the worst kind. but don’t stop. That’s the important thing. even if you aren’t writing a lot, even if it’s not for some huge project….

Sometimes, just write.

    Writing took quite a back-seat in my life in the last year, but I’m slowly starting to get back to it. I get up a bit earlier now and simply write. Just a little, no master-pieces – but at least it’s a start! I feel like we also need to feel an obligation towards our own well-being and put the things we like, e.g. writing, on our schedule!
