I have had ridiculous amounts of free time these past few weeks and yet, I still have the hardest time convincing myself to sit in front of the computer and write. I think I may have caught some sort of anti-writing plague. I'll sit around and check Facebook. No problems there, since we all know that Facebook is the best sucker of time there is. I'll catch up on blogs. I'll read emails. I may pull up Excel and check up on the 'ol budget. But opening a Word document and working on my writing project (shhh, it's a novel, but don't tell anyone) - nah, seems to much like homework.
Now don't get me wrong, I love to write. Once I start, it's like I've fallen through the rabbit hole - I don't want to come back out. But man, is it difficult to get started. So today, I instituted the one sentence rule. I am going to write one sentence a day.
The idea - don't tell my brain this - is that I'll get swept away by my one, brilliant sentence and a mad typing frenzie will ensue.
Anyone else have this problem?
