I sat down to write my blog post at 8:10. It is now 9:30 and I am just now recording my words. That’s right, one hour and seventeen minutes and here I am. I will admit that for the first ten minutes or so, I scribbled ideas only to cross through them. I had several ideas, but quickly discovered that they needed more time to incubate. So, that put me at about 8:20. I decided to do a quick check of my e-mail and discovered a couple of messages that required a prompt response. That took maybe another ten minutes at the most. Okay. 8:30. No problem! I started to write a few words, but again, those weren’t the right words at the right time. 8:35. Hmm. There’s cold pizza in the fridge. Maybe a little snack? Okay! Then, back to the blank page. That lasted maybe another five minutes at the most. I decided to scroll through my Twitter feed. Then, I remembered that I hadn’t checked out Goodreads for a while, so I entered that web address and started skimming lists and reviews. That lasted for another ten minutes or so and it’s almost 9:00 and still nothing to post. Oh, my cup was nearly empty, so I needed to wander out to the kitchen for a refill. Then, back to my desk. I picked up an orange pen, but then switched it for a green pen. I shuffled some papers on my desk before they scattered and searched for the remote. I clicked through channels, but nothing appealed to me. Back to the blank page again. 9:17 p.m. No, I’m not going to pick up my phone again. No, I’m not going to channel surf one more time. It’s time to make the words happen.
