There’s been a lovely, lively discussion floating around the blogosphere about why we write, when we find time to write, what we give up to write. James Scott Bell over at The Kill Zone has a wonderful post about finding the Energy to Write.
My take on it? Coffee: Yes. Check out my profile. At least a pot a day. Three cups before I walk out the door and the rest of the post in my to-go cup. And then iced tea after that for the rest of the day. All day. Every day.
Exercise: No. Unless you count the walking I do when the weather warms up and I’m out of school. Otherwise, zip, zilch, nada.
Morning person? Yes. Unfortunately, I can’t get any writing done before I leave for work at 6 AM. But the ‘furious 500’ sounds like a great idea. I might try that.
Power nap? No. No nap at all unless I’m not at work. Sleeping in front of a classroom of kids is bad form.
Leaving something to kick start your writing the next day? Now that sounds like something I can do.
Go check out Bell’s post and let me know: What do you do to find the energy to write?
