On Passionate Writing

On Passionate Writing . . .

No one is asking--
let alone demanding
that you write.
The world is not waiting with bated breath
on your article
or book.
Whether or not you get a single word on paper--
the sun will rise,
the earth will spin,
the universe will expand.
Writing is forever and always a choice.
Your choice.
--Beth Mend Conny
Life is full of choices.
Easy ones.
Hard ones.
Sometimes we don't want to,
Sometimes we don't feel like it,
Often time there are too many demands on our time.
Too many tasks
Life is overwhelming.
Occasionally there are more fun things to do.
But the author who is passionate about writing
will find the time.
They will grab hold of discipline
and not let go
until that paragraph,
that page,
that chapter is written.
That is the choice they make today.
