I’ve Been Bad

I recently posted that I needed to start  writing at least three hundred words at day. “How’s that workin’ for ya?” you might ask, tongue in cheek, as  I haven’t been here in days. At this rate, I’ll be lucky if I can get three hundred words a week.

There’s a saying in AA, “You get what you need,” and I’m sure it’s not just an AA slogan.  I used to sing the old The Rolling Stones song to my kids and piss them off when they wanted something…”You can’t always get what you want….. but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get what you nee-ee-d.” Oh, yeah.

Well, I need more time to write. And in the last 24 hours, I’ve said that to myself probably 24 times. And what do I get in my in-box this morning? A quote from Nora Roberts. “You don’t find time to write, you make time!” I needed to see that. To remember I only have, like everyone else, twenty-four hours in my day,  six to seven or eight of those which I must sleep. So I  need to figure out how to make the time. Thank you, Nora Roberts for the kick in my proverbial butt.

But now, it’s 9:25 pm and I’ve been playing with this blog for the last hour. As usual, it took on a life of its own and I had three different topics going at once. I knew that if I tried to write about everything, then edit, I’d be here until tomorrow morning with five thousand words. So I copied the stuff and pasted it into a new blog for tomorrow-or some point where I have more time to elucidate my thoughts.

And they’re good ones too, so I’ll get on them before another four days flies by.
