When to write? The writer’s timeless question. When inspiration sparks, thus the common, obvious answer.
So often of late, the mind can’t wait, awakened and then swiftly, the churning begins.
What transactions to do, how must tasks for these final days of the year be prioritized?
What to tell the kids?
When should I trim my beard?
What milk and cheese substitutes to use for that Christmas side dish I want to make?
How did I get here? Why am I this way?
And then it’s clear. It’s true. The best practice is to write when the inspiration demand to be heard, insists on action.
At least two things happen: words flow to the page; and the mind empties a bit, the churn slows, the ideas find space.
