Though Shalt Write

Sounds basic enough, doesn't it? If you're a writer, you write.

We all have our own habits and schedules. Some of us write our best stuff before breakfast, while others peck away at the keyboard late into the night. During grad school I wrote my most promising prose between the wee hours of 4 a.m. and 6 a.m., before the rest of the occupants in my house awoke.

But life doesn't always make it easy for us to find our writing time and space. And procrastination is too often our own worst enemy. So with all the real (and fake) demands on your time, it's important to push all else aside and just write.

In fact, rather than reading this post admonishing you to do it, go write now. And so shall I. Maybe we can meet up soon and exchange drafts and critique notes over coffee or some other plausible procrastination beverage of choice.
