Life is sometimes the excuse...
Posted by Chris Nedahl

Having read everyone's writing visions, I am encouraged by seeing some common ground. There are points put forward that resonate with me, some on the negative, others on the positive.

I will be posting my vision later tomorrow, after morning Spanish with a friend, followed by a widowed neighbour's trip for coffee and shopping.

That last sentence feels less of an excuse not to get more writing done than it would have previously. I now see how other members have things going on in their lives which impede the desire to put pen to paper or tap away at the keyboard. The impracticality of dropping everything and creating that masterpiece seems to be shared by most of us.

I have been away for a few days - enjoyable but tiring - so I decided to ignore today's chores and that has proven quite productive in other ways. I began the process of printing paper copies, some for the first time, of all my poetry. I intend to start blogging this week and will begin by posting a weekly poem. My flash fiction is next on the agenda, then a move to my short stories, and so on. It will take some time but I desperately need such order in my writing life.

At this point, all I require to do is keep my motivation high. It's a bit like yoga - one is always tranquil and stress-free during each session - all that's needed is to maintain that wonderful feeling!
