Perhaps some of you are like me, and harbor a vicious spark of anger deep within your soul.  Rather than let it consume me from the inside out, I’ve decided to channel it; I’ve decided to wage war on the shortcomings that hold me back from accomplishing my goals.  If rush hour eats into writing time, I will wake up early, beat traffic, go to a diner close to work, and knock out word count.  If my energy levels suffer from dietary imbalances, I will condition my mind and digestion to accept healthier fare.  If I fail to get results, I will examine the evidence, reassess, then re-aggress.  

When I put function first, there’s no reason to give up and curse my environment, not until I’ve capitalized on every vantage I possibly can.

  1. Similarly, I try to put all my time to use in the best way possible. Recently, I’ve picked up audible and turned my commute into an hour of listening and studying the writer’s craft. As for dietary imbalances though…. well, there’s always more coffee!

  2. My job creeps into my writing time. Also exhaustion is a creativity killer. I’m not sure what to do about this … take on the lifestyle Rodolph in La Boheme perhaps?
    Maybe I’m a lightweight; I haven’t found myself equal to that step. The most important thing, I think, is to keep giving whatever resources you can to the project.

    • I like to say that the first task of creativity is carving out time and resources to set aside for projects, while maintaining other obligations. I can’t say what’s right for you, as I’m not you, but I’ve found that an easy way to study is taking advantage of time spent in the bathroom, as gross as that sounds, LOL!
