Take Today for Example

Not only do I not write more, but I don’t read as much as I would like. Take today for example.

Why Don’t I Write More?

Why Don’t I Write More?

Good question.

Thank you.

I think there are a few reasons, but no good reasons. My commute home is a big reason. My job wears me out and after 45 minutes in traffic, My mental and emotional energy and availability have gone empty. Sure, while I work I think alot and come up with good stuff, but it is a little inconvenient to stop and write while trying to maintain 180 acres and the equipment is too loud to carry a recorder with me.

Weekends are no good either. I need two Sabbath days to recover from work.

Our home is so small, there really is no good place to quietly think and write. Once I get home, I don’t want to go back out to a library or B&N for quiet spaces.

So, I do nothing. Good question, though.

Thank you.
