What to Do When You Don't Feel Like Writing
I feel terrible, coughing, sneezing and aching in every joint. I’ve felt this way for a couple of days and it’s getting worse. I’m calling it a cold because I managed to get all my flu shots. Still, my hair hurts, and I’ve always regarded that as a sure indicator of the flu.
My laptop makes it possible to write and post a blog today. And what better topic for today’s blog than writing when you don’t feel up to it? When you commit yourself to writing a blog, you pretty much have to write something every day.
Writer’s Delight provides me a structure for writing when inspiration is absent. My daily blog entries range from 150 words to 300 words. My knowledge of and enthusiasm for the day’s topic influences the length of the blog. But more important is a structure to work within and the commitment to get it done.
My first love was reading, and my second love was writing. Deciding how to string words together fascinates me.
My interests and pursuits are wide ranging. I'm a self-employed educational entrepreneur and book packager. During my career I have worked as a consultant, professor, business owner, author and ghostwriter.
