Today I will write . . .


Today I will write because I want to be a writer.

Today I will write because the ache of not writing has become intolerable.

Today I will write to calm the noise in my head, as each thought is fighting for attention. Letting the thoughts drain from my fingers will give me clarity and peace.

Today I will write because my imagination and creativity isΒ clawing at the door and gripping tight to the bars, desperate to break free from the space it is held captive. Only I have the power to set them free.

Today I will write because it is the only thing I can do in my pj’s, sitting on my couch, that makes me feel absolute exhilaration.

Today I will write because the story that I have begun to tell is crying for help. It needs to be tended to and worked on and I am the only one who can fix it.

Today I will write so when I lay my head down at night, I can fall right to sleep, knowing that I consciously took a step towards my passion.

Today I will write because I AM a writer.

Today I will write . . .

will you?

  1. I’m so with you, Lisa! After a long weekend with sick kids and little adult thought/conversation, I just had to get back to my laptop today. Now perhaps we can both sleep tonight? πŸ™‚

  2. I will write because I have always written. I was born deaf and my best expression method has always been to write. After 28 years I got my implants and now I hear and speak (at least for 12 hours a day when the batteries die). But I find I can still say more with a few words on paper than with all the clumsy words I can speak. Keep writing I am going to look forward to reading.

  3. I write every day because it is what I do, it is me, I can’t imagine not writing every day. Lisa. I make my living writing, formerly for a daily newspaper, now scrambling as a freelancer and a blogger. So I write and love it. Happily, after many, many years of writing, I think I am getting better at it, too, thanks to and my daily posts here at WordPress. Good luck with your writing. I just found you at Linda G’s place, and hope to see more of your work now. I grew up first in Levittown and then Stony Brook, so … Long Island still owns a piece of my heart. πŸ™‚
