Much ado about not writing

How to not write? Simple, just stop. Once you get in the habit of stopping there’s nothing to stop you stopping except to get back up and write. You have to choose, writing or not. You can cry to the world that you love writing, but it’s all empty air until you sit down and break your habit of sitting. Writing can be fun, and is it ever rewarding. However, there are many days when writing isn’t convenient, or a struggle to develop a scene or step through the awkwardness of writing about something deeply personal or uncomfortable. That’s when sitting becomes easy, and writing hard. I can’t tell you that you will beat this habit, it’s hard. It’s one of those things all writers face at some point. The successful writers get back up and start writing, the not-so-successful don’t. Which do you want to be?
