Putting in the time

I read a quote in one of my favorite writing books The War of Art. An author was asked if he wrote on a schedule or when inspiration struck. He said when inspiration struck. Fortunately it did so every day at 9am.

It is all about putting in the time. Going to the office, the desk, the computer and logging in the hours. In school they used to teach us to write “I have nothing to say” or “Writers block” incessantly until something else hit. Sometimes that is what it takes to get the juices flowing.

The writers group yesterday was good. Since my piece was the shortest I went first and probably had a disproportionate amount of time from the group. No complaints.

I’m flirting with the idea of switching writer’s rooms because I think there may be one slightly closer, but I feel loyal to the owner of one I’ve been using. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
