Today’s Step Is Different

We’re writers.

So, most days, the step towards our goals that we want to accomplish will have something to do with writing.

But writing (or any other creative endeavour for that matter) is more than sitting on your butt and pressing keys.

Most days are like that, but maybe today is different.

Maybe today is a day on which you need something else. A creative walk, time with your family, a change of pace or place…

… or maybe a nap.

There are days when a step towards our writing goals is stepping away from the writing and taking care of ourselves.

If we don’t take care of ourselves, how can the writing be inspired? How can we inspire others if we are not inspired?

So, how much you’ve written today (or if you write at all) may not be the correct measurement for this day.

Maybe the measurement for today is how good you make yourself feel about yourself.

Maybe the measurement for today is how much you can recharge energy, how much fun you can have with your friends and how much you can disconnect from everything, including your writing.

So, if you have one of those days every once in a while, don’t beat yourself up.

The “not writing” is also part of the writing process.

And it’s an important part to give your inspiration some breathing room so it can blossom.
