There’s no point trying to write when you’re tired.

There’s no point trying to write when you’re inebriated; you are not Ian Fleming.

There’s no point trying to write when people in the room are expecting you to be attentive to their presence.

There’s no point trying to write when you don’t know what you want to write.

There’s no point trying to write if you don’t want to write.

There’s no point trying to write if you think it’s going to be easy to write.

There’s no point trying to write if you think whatever you write is holy.

There’s no point trying to write if you aren’t sincerely open to criticism.

There’s no point trying to write if you think you won’t need to re-write.

There’s no point trying to write if you don’t take pride in what you write.

There’s no point trying to write if you’re not prepared to have your writing define you.

 

So when you’re struggling to take a writing day and these recurring thoughts are interrupting you, “know thyself” and wait for a more opportune time.
