Quote of the Day—Woody Allen

I’ve decided I’m showing up today—showing up for my kids, showing up to write, showing up, period. Sometimes I find myself so overwhelmed by all the things I have to do that I don’t even try. But how can a person be successful if he/she doesn’t even begin? When you work for yourself and there aren’t any concrete consequences (like getting fired) for playing hooky, it can be hard to make yourself do what you need to. I know that’s true of me with my writing, and I think it’s a pitfall of many of my fellow writers out there. But we want to be successful, right? We want to achieve and do what we set out to do. In order for that to happen, we actually have to set out to do it. Every single day, we’ve got to show up.

Today’s prompt: Make yourself write when you don’t feel like it. Even if you’ve already written today, or even if you think you’ll write later but don’t feel like it beforehand, make yourself do it. It’ll be good practice for the next time you don’t feel like writing at all.

Happy writing!
