100 Ways

You’re creative. You can come up with 100 excuses why it’s not convenient to write.

The ‘y’ on your keyboard is missing. Jay Leno is on. Your cat named Jay Leno ate your keyboard.

The truth is, writing is damned inconvenient. It’s never convenient to have a plot or character bothering you when you’re supposed to be presenting Marketing for Morons to, well, morons, or explaining what that thing is between your nose and your upper lip to your eldest child while talking on the phone and making your youngest child a ham sandwich (ham and lettuce on the side).

It’s easy to find 100 excuses why it’s not convenient to write.

A writer finds 100 ways to fit writing into their inconvenient life.

Here’s a great excuse for not writing on Mother’s Day: My daughter wanted me to BE SuperMom. No, seriously, with a pink cape and everything. So I did, and had a blast with her in the backyard. Then I wrote about it.

  1. Heather, this is awesome. I feel like I am Tinkerbell with a cute outfit flitting around getting things done. I feel like WonderWoman she is a problem solver. At least he outfit is awesome. Hahaha.
    Your pink cape is fabulous. Thanks for sharing that brighten my day.

    I wanted to tell you that I have a digital camera and leave it in my bag or purse. If I see something that inspires me I take the camera out. It worked! My friend Karen is a camera whiz with photos so she will help me with that. What a great idea!!

    I am suffering with a flare up with ulcerative colitis so needing a lot of rest. I have to stay off wheat, dairy and sugar for good. It does work. I have had this for 5 years now.

    I am starting a journal of my thoughts and wrote three stories about my parents who helped me with my hearing impairment. I speak very well and people can’t believe I have a hearing impairment. Have a great weekend.
