Guess what I discovered? I can't write on Mondays. Well, except for in my journal. I can'texplain it but I simply can't hunker down to any serious writing.
Sure I go to my writing space with my morning coffee (a must have) and sit. I can't write. Nothing comes out, literally nothing, not even gibberish. BLANK screen, BLANK mind.
I check and respond to email, read my favorite blogs and a few that are not on my list of favorites. I save stuff to folders to read later. I still can't write.
Instead of beating up myself about it, I've decided to label Monday my official personal writer's day off or is the correct term writing day off? Any thoughts?
Freedom! I don't have to force myself to write a piece or two for my column or posts for my blog.
Maybe, just maybe, with no pressure, I may write next Monday. I may just write up a storm and dash off two advance articles for the column and schedule a few posts for my blogs.
Anyway, until that happens, I'll enjoy my Monday day off.
Is there a day in the week when, no matter how you try, you just can't generate words for serious writing. Do you have a writer's/writing day off? What do you spend time doing on your day off?
