Authors need to write. It's in our DNA, while at the same time, the tug to do so many other things that need our attention pulls us away from the computer. As I write this, my body says go for a walk, my mind says finish planting those flowers, make that banana bread with those overripe bananas sitting on the kitchen counter.
So, today I plan to take a walk, make that banana bread to make my husband happy, and make some phone calls I've avoided. Oh, drop my bike off at the bike shop! Perhaps the flowers could wait one more day.
But, I must carve out time to write. I always remember this lovely Polish author I met years ago at a conference say, "Write every day, even if it's only one sentence." Yes, even if it's only one sentence... That may be all that gets done today, but I hope not!
