We all of us have been there, even you, bloggers, right? :
You are busy at work, or you’re at a party, or you’re on a date.
You would LOVE to be totally wise & oriental and “fully live the moment”. But you are not.
You have things to do, but you deeply desire a hard-working loneliness, well you will at least have all the time necessary to : write your article, explore your ideas, paint, or begin your first novel.
Yeah, you see me coming : When you have the chance to be in this moment, alone, quiet, with a few hours free, you… do nothing. You procrastinate. You wander, take a nap, have a lazy poolsplash, you don’t even try to begin (or if you do, your hand stays in the air holding its pencil while daydreaming about elephants or printers. Strange statue!).
And therefore you are a bit angry against yourself because you spoil your time, and you feel this ugly emptiness I would call self-wtf.
Dial/Lever : What does that mean? Are we strong inside but lazy in action? What could we do to fix that? Discipline? Daily same-hour schedules, like Stephen King and other writers? What if we decided to stop everything “at once” when we wish to have time. Abandon job? Date goodbyeing? Party flight? Just to write at once? Why not. What are YOUR solutions?
Thanks for reading!
