When a Writer Isn’t in the Mood To Write

We will have bad days.

We’ll find ourselves fumbling for phrases, trying to fill in the awkward pauses. Pacing back and forth, we’ll hope the muse visits at the last minute. We’ll wish for a spark, just enough to set ideas free from the abyss of our tired minds.

Then, we’ll write.

Even when it doesn’t feel a hundred percent right. With messy sentences and a stack of drafts, we’ll weather through the apathy. We’ll pick up the pen and drop unrealistic expectations for breakthroughs — believing that though today our best work may not be born, the hours we’ll put in could bring greatness forth someday.

Showing up makes a world of difference.
