The hardest thing about writing is writing. -Nora Ephron
I mentally shuffle through different writing topic possibilities in the morning. But first, I must have coffee.
Coffee drinking complete and now it is time to sit at my desk to write. But first, I should really check the news. Mike Huckabee said what???
I have seen enough news so now I can settle down and write. But first, maybe I should tend to the dishes.
My kitchen is spotless and now I turn to writing. But first, Oh my, the book shelves are a bit dusty. I’ll swiffer that away immediately.
Not a speck of dust on the book shelves! Great, now I must switch on my computer. But first, I think the cat needs some food.
The cat thanks me for her food…sort of, and now I can have a moment to write. But first, maybe an important email awaits in my inbox. I should really click, read, and respond.
Emails have been returned! Now I stare at a blank screen taunted by a cursor. But first, what’s happening on Twitter and Instagram?
Perusal of others’ lives complete, so I really ought to return to writing. But first, I could use a snack. Hmmm, almonds sound good right now.
My stomach has ceased its growling and now I can write. But first, I must re-read an article or two for research.
I’m satisfied with my updated research. I should write on what I just read. But first, did the mail arrive?
Catalogs, bills, and more catalogs. I’ll quickly open these bills. Now I’ll organize my finances and then I can get down to the business of writing.
Finally, it is time to conquer that blinking cursor and type it away! But first, I’m going to make more coffee and re-fuel.
