One of these days, there’s going to be a no-excuses button invented that will make writing obligatory.
As in, “I have to go to the store for artichoke dip for Game of Thrones night!” – NO EXCUSES
“I have to head to my grandparents’ storage unit to retrieve priceless heirlooms.” – NO EXCUSES
“But how can I possibly not shower two days in a row?” – NO EXCUSES!
This button will get so much use from my busy weekend lifestyle, full of legitimate excuses but none that fully counter empty pages. I’ve got to figure out how to 1) sleep less, or 2) write in my sleep to take advantage of these 24 hours in each day.
Until then, I’ll just look to Will Smith for guidance whenever something legit seems to step into my writing schedule.
