Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


I keep a daily schedule listing the items I want to accomplish. I make an entry Monday to Sunday, dutifully blocking an hour to write. And life laughs at me. Phone calls, text messages, hunger pains, dirty laundry, and a thousand other diversions, conspire to distract me from my best intentions. They are tests, each designed to challenge my commitment to my stated goal.

I find myself engaged in the excuse removal business.  I schedule laundry time, plan meals, silence the phone and other notifications. When my scheduled writing time arrives and laundry beckons, I refer the request to its scheduled time and push the beast out the door. Leaning hard on the door I block the other diversions and attempt to summon my muse by writing.

Is your daily writing time scheduled?


Keep on writing.
