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