I am a writer. So why do I so often not write? Why do I put it off, ignore it, give it minimal time then try to write during periods when I know I won't have the energy to really put in the proper effort (like when I'm really tired and need to go to bed, for example)?
I want to allow myself to sink into story, to live there for pages and pages and hours and days and not constantly be pulled out by worries of other things I need to do, other places I need to be, other people's schedules and needs and interruptions. I want to not care that I only have 45 minutes before my boyfriend comes home--I want to write anyway, enjoying it, living it, not worried that I have to do something else sometime soon.
This month is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). During November, I manage to put everything else on low priority and delve into my writing. I want to find the way to do this all the time. I know that I won't always have time to give my writing this much space and attention every day the way I do in November, but I desperately crave having this focus regularly during the rest of the year. So that's what I wish for--I wish to enjoy my writing and stories all the time, not just in November.
