Writing Is a Lifestyle

Vacation is over and it is time to get back into the swing of things. It is time to write again… and write and write and write.

But I don’t feel like writing.

The inspiration just isn’t there. Reaching the intersection of creativity and productivity that produces a work of writing isn’t like flipping a switch. I don’t think that you can be a successful writer only every once in a while. Writing is a lifestyle, and for creativity and productivity to converge one must actively practice both of those disciplines.

Creativity is not nearly as spontaneous as people make it seem, and productivity can be way more spontaneous than people make it seem.

Yes, college is starting up again too. I’ll have to make an appearance at my part time job pretty soon as well. What an awkward time to attempt to ramp up my writing endeavors. Yet writing is a practiced lifestyle… it can’t wait for the occasional slow week.

It has to be an every week, every day discipline.
