The Right Time to Write

There is never a right time to write but always time to write whether the time is right or not. Sometimes you just have to start writing or typing to let the story flow. Planning helps but when your mind drifts to the perfect line or scene don’t wait to get it out.

I use to keep notes on my phone but now I carry a small notepad in my purse so I can capture my thoughts. I don’t know what it is about holding a pen and jointing down details or some character’s voice but it feels better than thumbing it into a piece of technology.

But that’s my chosen tool of creative channeling. What’s yours? Whatever it is, just remember to use it whenever you can. It’s still great to have a routine dedicated time to writing but do you think Micheal Jackson only made music each Sunday at noon? Or Maya wrote poetry after working an eight-hour shift? Not likely.

Get your words out, whenever and however you need to. Your legacy depends on it.

Oh, and one of the moments I chose to just get words out is now being published in an anthology by Z Publishing. So these are words that I can testify to. I’ve lived and are still living each syllable. I’ll let you know when America’s Emerging Writers – Atlanta edition is out so you can go grab a copy and see what got picked up. Hint: It’s a fictional young adult fantasy piece (Yay, I write that too).

Until next time…

With passion,

DNC
