open invitation no. 78: a writing habit

First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not.

[Octavia Butler]

I forgot how much I love to write when the sky is dark. In the wee morning hours the words swirl. Under the dark night sky the words wobble and bend.

I write for work, completing tasks and creating content. It is satisfying work.

Yet, I miss writing for me when the sky is dark. The habit slipped away, likely in the darkness of my journey. The irony is not lost on me.

The invitation I am accepting is to claim a habit that will sustain my writing life. You are welcomed to accept this invitation, too. What habit allows you to stack words?

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.
